Onjali Rauf

Join award-winning and bestselling children’s author and activist, Onjali Q. Raúf. Her debut book, ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’, won the 2019 Blue Peter Book Award and Waterstones Children’s Book Prize. Onjali is the founder of 'Making Herstory', and of 'O’s Refugee Aid Team', an organisation that provides support for refugee families surviving in Calais and Dunkirk. Her other titles include ‘The Star Outside My Window, The Night Bus Hero’, and a follow up to ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’, called ‘The Day We Met the Queen.’

“Raúf's touching debut could hardly be more topical. Syrian refugee Ahmet is struggling to adapt to his new life in London, until our nine year old narrator and friends come up with a very clever plan to reunite him with his lost family. Utterly delightful, Raúf's book centres on the importance of friendship and encourages children not to fear those who are different.”
-The Mail On Sunday
