“Noras tongue was covered with dry dust. Luckily it wasn’t far to the trees where the satsumas grew. […] She ripped the peel off the first satsuma and pushed the whole satsuma into her mouth. Still chewing Nora grabbed the next one when she suddenly felt someone behind her. She turned round in fear.She looked at a tongue, a long pink tongue that hung out of a mouth with pointed teeth. Two brown eyes looked into her face. They shone as if they had been crying.”

This story of a wonderful friendship tells of bravery and hope – also and particularly in times of war.
