Synopsis: When a new family moves in next door, Joe's mum explains that they are asylum seekers. Joe hears that they are silence seekers, especially as Mum adds that they need peace and quiet. When he sees a young boy from the family sitting disconsolately on the steps, Joe decides to help him find a quiet place in the noisy and chaotic city.

A simple, moving story which is the perfect way to gently open discussion around the refugee crisis.

Review: "Explores the vibrancy and diversity of city life through gritty, yet child-friendly illustrations that are beautifully atmospheric and evocative" (Booktrust Best Book Guide)

"Pearce's manga-style art shows grungy urban scenes honestly" (Publishers Weekly)

"An original and thought-provoking story that explores the issue of asylum seekers in a truly engaging way" (Child Education Plus)

"A touching book" (Alison Walsh Independent on Sunday)

"Beautifully illustrated by Carl Pearce, with a resonating message that will encourage children to want to ask questions" (Bournemouth Daily Echo)
