From the publisher

A beautiful, moving and sensitively told picture book about language barriers, communication and a very young child's immigrant experience.
When Ronnie moves to a new house, in a new country, he's excited to make friends. But when he introduces himself to everyone at nursery - "My name is four. I am Ronnie years old." - the other children can't help but giggle. His words are all mixed up! Ronnie misses home and laughing with his old friends. But new doesn't stay that way for long...

This authorial debut from Bulgarian author-illustrator Vyara Boyadjieva is honest and uplifting, with Ronnie ultimately discovering that kindness, and laughter, are universal.
