Rama and her family, are forced to flee their once-peaceful village to escape the ravages of the civil war raging ever closer to their home With only what they can carry on their backs, Rama and her mother, father, grandfather and brother, Sami, set out to walk to freedom in Europe. This unique picture book was inspired by the stone artwork of Syrian artist Nizar Ali Badr, discovered by chance by Canadian children’s writer Margriet Ruurs. The author was immediately impressed by the strong narrative quality of Mr. Badr’s work, and, using many of Mr. Badr’s already-created pieces, she set out to create a story about the Syrian refugee crisis. Orca Book Publishers is pleased to offer this book as a dual-language (English and Arabic) edition.

Everything changed the day the Buddha's hand arrived in the mail. These stories are about women of various ethnic backgrounds, from various geographic regions of the U.S., who find themselves in situations that spin wildly out of control or silently disintegrate. Yet, somehow McFerrin's characters maintain their sense of humor, if not their equilibrium. "The Hand of Buddha" leads us into a mature, sophisticated territory with playfully erotic, irony and edgy humor. Linda Watanabe McFerrin is the author of two poetry collections: "Chisel, Rice Paper, Stone" and "The Impossibility of Redemption Is Something We Hadn't Figured On, " and the novel "Namako: Sea Cucumber," She is a winner of the Katherine Anne Porter Prize for Fiction, and lives in Oakland, California.
