There's Room for Everyone is a timeless yet topical allegory for war and the refugee crisis.


A child grows and discovers the world. As he lies awake at night, he sees there’s enough room in the sky for all the stars and the moon. When he visits the ocean, he sees there is enough room for all the fish, even for the whales.
As he grows up, he doesn’t understand why people fight for space. Surely, if we are kinder to one another, there will always be room for everyone? This is a beautiful and profound picture book — a testament of our time and a touching allegory for war and the refugee crisis. This young child’s reflections carry a profound message of peace and tolerance.

The Observer

She had the idea for the tale while shouting at the TV news, but the tone isn’t angry – it’s wise and warm.

The Sunday Times

This lesson in sharing is wittily and originally rendered. 

Books for Topics
