What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
During the worst days of the refugee crisis (not that it has stopped, just that the BBC doesn't talk about it as before), I was tormented by the growing Islamophobia and all the stereotypes in the media. It was particularly heartbreaking for me because I had traveled to the middle-east and I knew them to be wrong. I knew I had to do something to shatter some of those misconceptions. Writing and illustrating became my way of changing the outcome even if at a very minute scale.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The main characters were based on living people. The granny Tata is an actual sweet grandma that lives in Lebanon.
