This unique picture book was inspired by the stone artwork of Syrian artist Nizar Ali Badr, discovered by chance by Canadian children's writer Margriet Ruurs. The author was immediately impressed by the strong narrative quality of Mr. Badr's work, and, using many of Mr. Badr's already-created pieces, she set out to create a story about the Syrian refugee crisis.

The children in Miss Honeywood's class grow the most enormous turnip that anyone has ever seen. But how can they pull it out? Tariq suggests using a crane, Kieran a helicopter.
