Over Under Sideways Down, a comic book story of a refugee fleeing conflict, by Karrie Fransman.

The comic, produced in collaboration with the British Red Cross, has been created in celebration of Refugee Week 2014.

Over Under Sideways Down is a story about the real-life experiences of, Ebrahim Esmail, a young Kurdish-Iranian refugee who embarked on a harrowing journey to begin a new life in the UK when he was just 15 years old. It is a story of resilience in the face of persecution. It is a story about losing everything you know and love. It is a story about survival and finding the strength to start again.

Hope you hadn’t forgotten that it’s ELCAF this weekend! We’ve got a table, which will be laden with goods so pop along, buy a book, say hello, have a chat and all that. We’re looking forward to seeing you!
