Riassunto: A boy wishes he were a bird so he could fly back to his beautiful house, on the other side of the wall. He is trying to understand why his family and their neighbours were forced to leave their nice colourful homes and live in unfinished grey cement houses surrounded by a wall. Will they ever be able to return to their lovely homes? A highly powerful book on the situation in the occupied territories from an innocent little boy's point of view.

Over the last five years, she has written and published over 35 books, mainly for children under 12 years old, and has translated several others from English and French into Arabic. In March 2007, she won the National Committee of the Lebanese Child's best book award for Mountain Rooster, and in February 2009 There is War in my City was included on the honour list of the Anna Lindh Foundation. Fatima is an active member of the Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), Brussels branch, where she participates in several workshops a year, as well as organizing bi-monthly critique group meetings. She participates in various reading activities in Lebanon, such as Reading Week (in spring) and the Book Festival (in summer), where she gets a chance to visit remote villages in Lebanon and read to the children in schools and public libraries. She has recently started to give workshops, in various Arab capitals, for writers who want to focus on children's literature.
