Something Is Missing


Nyawech no longer wants the family’s favourite foods. She is determined to have pizza even if it means making it herself!



“Something is Missing is a delightful book that warms the heart and offers so much about other cultures.”

“Something is Missing and Maybe Even Pigs break down the cultural barriers by introducing young readers to the lives of Nyawech and Jacob who experience struggles and fears common to all children. Visually pleasing and a great read for children and adults alike.”

“Your child’s mind and heart will be moved after reading “Something is Missing” and “Maybe Even Pigs.” The author’s creative writing style encourages children to reflect on the similarities and differences of their own culture and others. The Cultures are explored with sensitivity, humour and respect.”
