This unique text compares in pictures the lives of two boys living on opposite sides of the world. One boy lives in a city in Australia the other in Morocco, North Africa. The book contains a short introduction written in English and Arabic and then proceeds to tell the story of a day in each boy’s life through pictures.
The book illustrates how culturally different each boy’s life is whilst at the same time highlighting the similarities. It touches on the concept of global trade and provides a look at the way in which the environment affects areas such as food supply and provision, architecture and local trade.
