This is an autobiography about a man who grew up in Libya. He retells his childhood through the comic book format. There are now three books in the series. I do like the biography genre, especially ones about travel. Through the book you can see what it was like growing up in rural France, Gaddafi’s Libya and Assad’s Syria during the 1970s and ‘80s. So you learn something about the country. The author’s mother was French. It’s interesting to learn how his family lived compared to the average person in Libya. What’s more, he was white, possibly the only white person within 200 kilometres. It really is a pleasure to read.
An adult who is 40 returns home by train and falls asleep. When he wakes up he is back in his native village as a kid, again. The book was adapted into a film but no-one saw it. It came out a few years ago. This book could appeal to young readers and adults alike.
