Silence Seeker, The This deceptively simple story would appeal to children of various ages. When Joe's mother explains to him that the boy who has just moved in next door is an 'asylum seeker', he hears - in his innocence of a world of wars and persecution - the phrase, 'silence seeker' and sets out to introduce his prospective friend to the quietest places in their urban neighbourhood. With artwork that wonderfully captures the feel of a city - crowded, noisy and bewildering to an outsider, but familiar and containing quiet corners for a boy like Joe - this is a thought-provoking introduction to ideas of asylum and befriending.
