This picture book for slightly older readers describes in muted colours and text a neighbourhood of colourful, smart modern buildings all around a solitary Orange House. At first the modern buildings think that Orange House doesn’t want to talk to them because she doesn’t like them; but when they hear what the neighbourhood used to be like, full of houses like Orange and with large gardens, they vow to protect her instead from the oncoming builders: “The Orange House keeps our alley more beautiful,” says one. “Without her, we can’t breathe easily,” says another. It is a fable about change, remembering one’s cultural heritage and taking care of the environment. The book is translated from Arabic.
