The story follows the journey of Azzi, a young girl, forced to leave her home and country due to the dangers of war.

Garland's style has a warmth about it that's shaded in shadowy, light-caught colours that never seem quite solid or still on the page. She's crafted a kind, warm-hearted and very very quietly provocative book centred around the journey of the titular Azzi. Since asylum can be a confusing issue for children (and even adults), here are some books that explore what it really means to flee your home and have to start your life over. It would help other children to understand what refugees go through which links to citizenship and could help them to develop empathy.I was really impressed with this book--it showed just enough of the child's view on war and on being a refugee to make the reader anxious and afraid, but not so much that it would overwhelm or trigger a kid.

With only her teddy bear and a blanket they flee, across a dark sea with many others in a small boat. this story ,about this girl named azzie escaping her country because of war and leaving her grandmother behing, she has to learn new language and her dad has to find a job or they won't have enough money to stay and they will have to go back to their country at war, is very good because i like adventure books and this one is very exiting, i do recommend this book! The graphic novel-style picture book is heartbreaking but something children need to recognise as normal in some people's lives, even pupils in their own class. This is where the title becomes more pertinent; Azzi's caught in between two worlds and she's neither one or the other.It would be great to point out the similarities to Azzi's life to their own, to be able to empathise with Azzi and how the journey she has had is tough. The book is very emotive and even made me cry, therefore, I'm not sure it would be suitable for younger children. She is best known for her warm and witty portrayals of family relationships, and for her outstanding work for preschool picture books. The text is so rich and would be brilliant to use in KS2 classrooms where it could be explored and enjoyed to its full potential. The comic book style offers lots of pictures, allowing us to explore the details of this child’s experience.

It is important to understand that this is similar to events which are happening in the world right now. Azzi In Between first came to my attention following it winning the inaugural Little Rebels Children’s Book Award . It prompts many good discussions about how one might feel as a refugee with the hardships possibly encountered when having to escape from war and other dangers.I would honestly recommend this book to all teachers, adults and children over a certain age/maturity. This follows the story with more detail then 'The Journey' and would be more usual to share with a class. Azzi In Between is an excellent cross-curricular resource that looks at asylum, war, separation and integration and what it is to be a refugee today.

They have to leave their home and escape to another country on a frightening journey by car and boat.The story would need to be approached in a sensitive manner, and may need to be explained further, but would be brilliant to use in the classroom. The journey is scary, Azzi misses her Grandma, and she doesn't understand the language in her new country.
