On two feet and wings
By Abbas Kazerooni

Kids and war should not mix but the reality is that they do. For some children life is based on a daily struggle just to survive. If you have read any of the Parvana books by Deborah Ellis or any of Morris Gleiztman books about Felix then this is for you too. Set during the Iran-Iraq War, nine year old Abbas has to leave his family and friends to escape Tehran. War is at its worst and if he does not escape now then very soon he will be enlisted to fight. He arrives in Istanbul where struggle continues. Courage is what he needs but how will he find it when he is all alone?
