The Colour of Home

by Mary Hoffman, illustrated by Karin Littlewood
£6.99   paperback  Frances Lincoln Publishers Ltd (2003)

The Colour of Home by Mary Hoffman, illustrated by Karin Littlewood Hassan feels out of place in a new cold, grey country. At school, he paints a picture showing his colourful Somalian home, covered with the harsh colours of war from which his family has fled. He tells his teacher about their voyage from Mogadishu to Mombasa, then to the refugee camp and on to England. But gradually things change.
 
When Hassan's parents put up his next picture on the wall, Hassan notices the maroon prayer mat, a bright green cushion and his sister Naima's pink dress - the new colours of home.
