"Bathra" by Halla bint Khalid
Bathra, meaning 'annoying person' in Arabic. An unruly five year old girl sparks chaos on a long airplane flight. No passenger on board is safe from her troublemaking. Based on a true story (except for a minor tweak at the end) this funny cartoon storybook is loved by children of all ages! Illustrations by the author's 10 year old daughter Moothi.
