'Goodbye, Emma' helps children relate to the hardships, both physical and emotional, of children fleeing war and torture and tells the story of a boy refugee who is forced to leave behind his pet when his family flees the country. This book is based on a true story as once upon a time two children had to leave their country because they were refugees. The author was one of these children. The children could not take their dog with them. Their dog was called Emma. Emma lived for many years more and died an old dog back in the country the two children no longer could call home. They always loved Emma. And Emma loved them.
Proceeds from the sale of 'Goodbye, Emma' as well as the first hundred copies of the book are being donated to various refugee centres around the world.

When I came up with the idea for my first book 'Goodbye, Emma' which tells a story of a child refugee forced to leave his dog behind, I decided to start my own charitable publishing venture that would raise funds and awareness for children refugees around the world. And so, Clever Fox Press was born, a company dedicated to all children refugees. We work with charities assisting children refugees in England, Canada, Germany, Greece, Iraq, Ukraine and Turkey. Through a unique collaboration with artists and toy makers around the world, we’ve created more than 20 children’s books since January 2016, and more books are on the way. We treat children how they want to be treated – as intelligent human beings who can comprehend and explore the many social and scientific issues our stories touch on.
