LoveReading View on Draw Me Close To You

What a sweet and touching book. I love its honesty and very 'real' language, giving you a true picture of Africa. The references to imams and shamans and the packed lunch of puff puffs, baobab juice and peanuts, give it a wonderful feel of the book being a little different and foreign.

I liked the play on words, the homynym for draw in the title and the 'smile just strokes away.'

The book has a wonderful message -of what is important in life and the hard lesson you sometimes have to face before you realise this.

The illustrations are very detailed and realistic and give the reader and listener lots to look at and discuss.

A lovely read with a simple and poignant message.
