About the book
“Sawt al Baher” is a story about immigration, children’s rights and tolerance. it tells the story of Leen who loves to sing and who gets her beautiful and joyful voice from the sea. One day, the sea stopped carrying joyful stories and happy tunes, his waves turned sad and his melodies were filled with sorrow. Leen is extremely sad for the sea, when she meets Arwa who tells her that the sea carries with it the voice of children living on its shores and crossing his waters, and it is they who are unhappy, not the sea itself. The 2 girls then seek out on a journey to find these children and bring back the joy to their hearts.
