An unforgettable story of how dreams of peace and unity can fly higher than any dividing wall. Television reporter Max travels to the West Bank to witness what life is like for Palestinians and Jews living in the shadow of a huge wall, built by the Israeli government to separate their communities and faiths. There, Max strikes up a friendship with an enigmatic Palestinian boy, Said. Together they sit under an ancient olive tree while Said makes one of his exquisite kites. But when Max is welcomed as a guest in Said’s home, he learns of the terrible events in the family’s past, and begins to understand why Said no longer speaks… Told from Max and Said’s dual points of view, this is a beautiful tale of tragedy and hope, with an ending that rings with joy.
“Trademark Morpurgo – a lovely story of hope and friendship amongst violence and grief.” Jill Murphy, Bookbag
