Guelph children from Syria illustrate and co-author a picture book

Seven Suitcases is a new children’s book written from the perspective of a 9-year-old Syrian girl who is new to Canada. It’s based on the true story of Ahmed, Farah and Hala Marie, who came to Canada with their parents three years ago. In this interview, the three siblings talk to CBC about what it was like to co-author and illustrate the book with the help of their teacher/librarian friend.
