A beautiful and touching journey of one little dragon fleeing a home that has become dangerous and finding refuge in a new place and with new friends.
The Red Suitcase is a simple and allegorical story with evocative illustrations and minimal text depicting the plight of refugees. From the unrest they leave behind, the treacherous journey they undertake, the fear they are met with and finally the acceptance and helping hand that is, and should always, be offered to them.
The Red Suitcase tells this story in its simplest form in a way that young children can understand and enjoy as one of friendship and acceptance.
