Adnan, The Boy Who Helped his Mummy Remember

Adnan’s mum does not remember; in this new place they now live in, she has retreated into a shell where the memories of the life they had to flee, too painful, are best pushed aside. Full of resourcefulness and creativity, Adnan sets on his own mission to bring his mother back to him. Cardboard boxes become a model of his grandparents’ house that they visited every Sunday and cut out paper stars remind them of the perilous journey they had to make to reach their new home. Bit by bit, memory by memory, Adnan builds up hope for the pair’s future in their new surroundings.
