Book Review: Illegal by Eoin Colfer and Andrew Donkin

A powerful graphic novel and timely story about one boy’s epic journey across Africa to Europe.

Ebo’s epic journey takes him across the Sahara Desert to the dangerous streets of Tripoli, and finally out to the merciless sea. But with every step he holds on to his hope for a new life, and a reunion with his sister.

This Gripping book will make you think about how a simple twist of fate like where you are born can truly determine the kind of life you can have. An inspiring tale about human perspective on how a boy comes to take great risks to reach a better life on a far away continent.It is entirely based on reality and is clearly a valuable resource for young readers.  Well-illustrated and moving story.
