My Two Blankets is the story of a young girl called Cartwheel who has arrived in a new country. She is daunted and scared in her foreign surroundings and no longer feels like herself. Cartwheel seeks comfort in a metaphorical blanket of her own words and sounds. When she meets another young girl at the local park, a friendship is formed and she begins to learn new words. Soon, Cartwheel feels a renewed sense of belonging and her new 'blanket' is full of hope, warmth and familiarity.

This is beautifully told story about finding your place in the world and embracing change in the face of adversity.

 

Rare words to be found in this book are:

War, strange, waterfall, glad, wondered and weaving.
