Foyles Notes

'The Day War Came was a very emotional book to work on. Nicola’s heartbreakingly poignant words make me cry every time I read them because of the tragedy of the story and the fact that it is real and actually happening in the world today. What I love about it though is the positive message of hope at the end and that it is a young child who reminds us that we can be kind and help each other.' Read more from Rebecca Cobb on illustrating The Day War Come on our blog.

Synopsis

A powerful and necessary picture book - the journey of a child forced to become a refugee when war destroys everything she has ever known. Imagine if, on an ordinary day, war came. Imagine it turned your town to rubble. Imagine going on a long and difficult journey - all alone. Imagine finding no welcome at the end of it. Then imagine a child who gives you something small but very, very precious... When the government refused to allow 3000 child refugees to enter this country in 2016, Nicola Davies was so angry she wrote a poem. It started a campaign for which artists contributed drawings of chairs, symbolising a seat in a classroom, education, kindness, the hope of a future. The poem has become this book, movingly illustrated by Rebecca Cobb, which should prove a powerful aid for explaining the ongoing refugee crisis to younger readers. £1 from every copy sold goes to the charity Help Refugees - find out more about their wonderful work at their website, helprefugees.org.
