A graphic novel with extraordinary images by Giovanni Rigano... it's a work of art and an education. I wish everyone would read it. I really do. -- Jenny Valentine * Buzzfeed * 'arresting graphic novel. Full of contrasts - cold sea and scorching desert, small kindnesses and casual cruelty, hope and sorrow - it tells the stories behind the blunt headline statistics * The Guardian * This is a gem of a book. A graphic novel which is gripping, inspiring and immensely tragic * Teaching English * Empathy comes from understanding, and that is what makes this book so incredibly important, especially now...i read the whole book in one sitting as I could not put it down. It is one of the very few graphic novels to make me cry. It's powerful, beautiful, illuminating and heartbreaking...Thank you Colfer, Donkin, and Rigano for this vital book. Highly recommend. * Scoop * This graphic novel, from the team behind the Artemis Fowl comics, will help you to start a discussion on the migrant crisis in an accessible way. * Teach Primary * Timely story * Irish Mail on Sunday * A graphic novel which has the potential to move the hearts and minds of young people in a positive way. Topical and of the utmost relevance to young readers, the subject of Illegal is the plight of migrants. So this book is a big deal...what this moving story offers is an insight into the human stories behind the numbers...Illegal gives us that intimate perspective on a topic too often dehumanised by faceless fatality figures on new broadcasts * Evening Echo (Cork) * Rigano's portraits create a real emotional affinity with the characters * Irish Times * A powerful, compelling work, evocatively illustrated ... It would take a hard heart not to be moved by this book. * Financial Times * This is an outstanding book, told with honesty and heart. * Irish Independent * An absolute must-read, this graphic novel is thought-provoking, profound, sensitive and totally gripping. * Book Trust * A deeply affecting account. -- Sarah Donaldson * The Observer, Children's Book of the Week * A powerful, involving graphic novel. -- Nicolette Jones * Sunday Times, Books to Watch Out For * Beautifully realised and punchily told. -- Alex O'Connell * The Times, Children's Book of the Week *

Incredible! A must read!

If you are a human being, or know a human being, then I would highly recommend this book. It's unbelievable what Ebo has to go through, and yet completly believable. And although the characters in this book are fictional, the situation they're in is very real. I've been a fan of Eoin Colfer's work for some time, and he never disappoints. The artwork is stunning and the book is high quality. I belive if everyone reads it, everything would be so much more clear. I loved this book and will definitely be reading it over and over again. "How can a human being be illegal?"
Kids love it!
