About the book

Book cover - My two blankets - Irena Kobald.

Cartwheel has arrived in a new country, and feels the loss of all she's ever known.

She creates a safe place for herself under an 'old blanket' made out of memories and thoughts of home. As time goes on, Cartwheel begins to weave a new blanket, one of friendship and a renewed sense of belonging.

It is different from the old blanket, but it is eventually just as warm and familiar.
