Annotation:
This amazing 2006 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor Book is about the extremely difficult topic of orphaned Sudanese boys fending for themselves in a war zone. Though the characters are fictional, the story is based on the true experiences of 30,000 children--the "Lost Boys"--during a bloody civil war. Garang, an eight-year-old, finds his Sudanese village destroyed after he spends the day tending cattle. He begins to walk, and meets other boys in the same straits. The group grows, and together they find their way to a refugee camp in Ethiopia. This moving story is illustrated with vivid, graphic artwork.
