Product description

Product Description

Melek always finds answers, some are under her super hijab. For others she needs the help of newcomer Tien who draws fantastic worlds as an escape, or the dress-ups- guru Lily, and sometimes even soccer-mad Zac who NEVER agrees with her.
Melek solves all problems, even rescuing Zac in the pool. And luckily her fashionista mother designs club colour- coded hijabs for footy fans.
When it’s the Book Character Parade, Melek can’t find a book with a girl character in a hijab. With the help of her school friends, Melek makes one.
Then Melek’s next challenge is to arrange an Aussie Rules Girls’ football match.

Melek is the imaginative problem-solver. Unable to find a book character in a hijab for the Book Parade, Melek writes her own, with a bit of help from Tien. Melek always finds answers, some are under her super hijab. For others she needs the help of newcomer Tien who draws fantastic worlds as an escape , dress-ups-guru Lily or even soccer-mad Zac who NEVER agrees with her. Melek wants to start her own Aussie Rules girls’ football team. New girl Tien is a cartoonist and draws ’everything’ that happens at school, even the Book Parade.
-Synopsis from Goodreads.com
This is a great story and one I could relate to even as an adult. I read this in one sitting, it’s pretty cool..
‘Hijabi Girl’ teaches kids to choose your socks, not your friends, by colour.. Melek is a hijabi girl who wants to create her own Aussie rules team and forms friendships in a non Muslim society.. I really saw myself in Melek, a girl who doesn’t see her hijab as a boundary to great things.. Where is it written a hijabi girl can’t play Aussie rules!? (lol) I love how this story talks of friendship among cultures, where difference is embraced not rejected.. I can see this story is a step to bridging gaps in the younger generation.. I encourage all younger readers to read this as soon as possible…

Special thx to my friend Juliet M. Sampson (author) who sent this book to me as a gift!!!

Fiction, especially children’s fiction, can do extraordinary things. It can often achieve things that no amount of lecturing or shouting from rooftops can. It can be enlightening while also being entertaining. It can promote understanding while also telling a good story. And this is what Hijabi Girl does.

It’s a good story about kids in a school. Like all kids they have their friendships and difficulties; they deal with teachers and teasing; they have their likes and dislikes. They are ordinary kids doing ordinary things. But one of them happens to be Vietnamese. And another is a Muslim girl who wears a hijab. The cultural differences among these kids are simply part of everyday life, along with all the other little differences between them. One character likes soccer, another likes drawing; one character is into princesses, another likes Aussie Rules footy; one character eats rice paper rolls, another eats only halal food; one character has a pet rat, the others don’t; one character wears a hijab, the others don’t.

In the end, difference is not only accepted, but celebrated. As it should be in real life. More kids books like this please!
