“Let me carry you,” said the Robot. “I’ll carry you in my heart, and shelter you from the cold and storms.” High atop a pile of rubbish sits a lonely Robot with a broken heart. Then one winter’s day, a Bluebird appears, fighting against the freezing wind. When the Robot offers her a home in the empty space where his heart used to be, neither of them can predict what astonishing things will happen. Together the newfound friends set off on a memorable journey that will change them both. This fable-like tale, bursting with bright, winsome illustrations, is a fresh take on the timeless themes of friendship and second chances.

Into every life comes the bittersweet mixture of life and death, joy and sorrow, hope and despair. What makes the difference between a happy life and a miserable existence is not the ratio between good and bad, but one's determination to cling to the good in spite of the bad. Growing up in northeastern North Carolina, John Luton marveled as his father told stories about his childhood and World War II adventures. Bluebird in Belgium relates many of those wonderful stories. Bluebird in Belgium is a heartwarming tale of childhood innocence, the love of family, and a search for meaningful existence during war and peace. It is also a tale of joyful encounters, painful separations, and the miracle of memory. Follow the Bluebird on a journey leading from the sweet potato fields of North Carolina to the desert sands of North Africa and snowy hills of Belgium. Discover the answer to the question that will not let him go: In the end, is life worth the struggle?

Vesna Maric left Bosnia the beginning of the war, at the age of sixteen, on a convoy of coaches carrying refugees to Penrith in the north of England. Bluebird is Vesna's funny, vivid and immensely readable memoir of the experience, from the beginning of the war through to her eventual return to Bosnia years later. Unlike many books on Bosnia, and refugees in general, Bluebird is never self-pitying, never grave. It's refreshing to read an account of these experiences filtered through the eyes of a teenager with attitude - written with brilliant comic timing and a great storytelling gift.
