This is a powerful and timely story about refugees, a graphic novel for all children with glorious colour artwork throughout. From Eoin Colfer, previously Irish Children's Laureate, and the team behind his bestselling Artemis Fowl graphic novels. ILLEGAL introduces us to brothers Ebo and Kwame, and their journey as they flee from Ghana, across Africa and over the Mediterranean Sea to find a safe haven in Europe. It shows us Ebo's unquenchable hope for a new life and for a reunion with his sister. Ebo is brought to life by Eoin Colfer, Andrew Donkin and Giovanni Rigano. The book is based on their extensive research and includes an original interview with a survivor. Told with humour, compassion and respect, this is a story for every child.
