Overview

It wasn’t a dream. The water was still there – the biggest flood he had seen in his life.

For nine-year-old Jehan, life in Pakistan is just as it should be. He attends school, plays cricket and fetches water for his family. But when the monsoon unleashes a catastrophic flood, Jehan is swept away and becomes trapped in a tree.

Then Jehan rescues a lost dog and he is no longer alone. But why does she keep swimming away and where is she going? Eventually, Jehan must follow her into the floodwater. But will the dog’s quest lead them to safety?

The companion tale from the author of Kelsey and the Quest of the Porcelain Doll.

Sensitively told, this important story brings home the horrific reality of natural disasters on the lives of children, families and communities around the world, but celebrates need for hope, kindness and resilience that these situations inspire in their aftermath.
