ILLEGAL introduces us to brothers Ebo and Kwame, and their journey as they flee from Ghana, across Africa and over the Mediterranean Sea to find a safe haven in Europe. It shows us Ebo's unquenchable hope for a new life and for a reunion with his sister.
Ebo is brought to life by Eoin Colfer, the Irish Children's Laureate, alongside the writer and artist behind his successful Artemis Fowl graphic novels, Andrew Donkin and Giovanni Rigano. It is based on their extensive research and includes some of their original interviews with survivors.
Told with humour, compassion and respect, this is a story for every child to get lost in.
