Swallow’s Kiss

Written by Sita Brahmachari, illustrated by Jane Ray

When Blessing finds a lost bag of paper birds, she follows a trail of wishes to the community who made them in this lyrical, free-verse tale about kindness and friendship.

Inspired by Sita Brahmachari and Jane Ray’s experiences as artists-in-residence at the Islington Centre for Refugees and Migrants, Swallow’s Kiss is a beautiful children’s book about the refugee experience. Filled with light, love and birdsong, this wonderfully uplifting tale explores the common threads that connect our communities.
