Book summary

Tata, Mama, Nerko, and Elko must now face the war. In search of safer places to stay, they are forced to leave their house, garden, and dogs behind. Thankfully, the love they have for each other, the communities’ caring, the people’s generosity, and Sad-Buddy’s presence for Nerko, sooth their plight. This story was inspired by the eventful childhood account of Nermin Grbic, during the Bosnia-Herzegovina war. A soft, sweet, and poetic account that alleviates the sadness of the topic.
