‘Boy Overboard’ – Morris Gleitzman

This week, we have started reading and studying ‘Boy Overboard’ by Morris Gleitzman. In it, there is a character called Yusuf who is football-mad and who has lost a leg in a landmine accident.

Take a look at this picture. How does it make you feel and what does it tell you about the world that some children live in?
