    Dear Gulwali Passarlay, I am working on a children’s educational book about Refugees and Migrants in which there is a piece about you and your work. We’d like to include a photo of you and wonder if you could supply a hi res scan of the picture that appears in the Bookseller article above? It’s a head & shoulders shot that is credited to you. I do hope you can help. With thanks & best wishes, Kate Lockley p.p. Wayland/Hachette Children’s Books

    Gulwali,
    I’ve just finished reading your book and have been blown away by your story. Such an exceptional and wonderful book, and yet such a terrible experience for anyone to go through – let alone a child. Ii sounds bad but I think I have been guilty of becoming almost apathetic to all the news stories of the refugee crisis but your book really brought home to me the reality of what it actually feels like and what so many people are going through everyday – thank you and congratulations on such a brilliant book.
