Annie (6) and I were interested in these stories because of their Middle Eastern origins. ‘A Rainbow in my Pocket‘ is translated from Persian. It is poetic, thoughtful and jumps from one idea to the next dreamily like a child’s imagination. I wondered whether Annie would find it too abstract, but she really engaged with it, particularly the delightfully simple illustrations.
