After a year of intense editing, translation, and production, Daniel and Ismail has finally taken the field! We are so grateful to our generous backers who have been with us since the beginning of this multilingual journey and are eager to share this important book with you!
Daniel and Ismail is a one-of-a-kind, uplifting picture book about a Jewish boy and a Palestinian boy who bond on the soccer field—translated into English, Hebrew, and Arabic. We wouldn’t have been able to complete this daunting project without the support of our backers on Kickstarter. Thank you for supporting Restless in our mission to bring global literature to English-reading children, middle graders, and young adults. We believe that now more than ever it is important to share literature that celebrates, not depreciates, our similarities and our differences.
