The EdJAM Children's Series is a collection of illustrated books for children designed by undergraduate students and illustrators to highlight historical and contemporary narratives that are missing from textbooks in Pakistan.
The story is inspired by the writer Emaan Jafar’s experience with her friend whose family came from India. It helps readers think about questions of belonging, as well as intergenerational differences, and friendships between communities who have historically been torn apart by colonialism and violence.
Writer: Emaan Jafar
Artist: Emil Hasnain
