Leo & Mousi, Refugees Unwanted! is out now!

Leo & Mousi, Refugees Unwanted is an educational, eye-opening, timeless story that connects with people of all ages. Inspired by the refugee crises in Europe that was created by greed for power by so-called modern western countries and has destroyed millions of innocent’s life’s and countries. Too many people lost everything they had and loved to become war refugees! A painful journey that leads to a future in misery and uncertainty.

The story of the little refugee mouse, Tobi, tells us that we should never judge anyone by their size, race, and looks! Because there is a little mouse in every mighty Leo and a mighty Leo in every little mouse. Never underestimate anyone! Treat everyone with kindness, understanding, respect and love.
The symbolic meaning behind “Leo & Mousi”
If you have read the memoirs, Destination: Freedom and Definition of Freedom, you don’t need an explanation/translation for this deeply meaningful story. You will figure everything out and get the message between the lines. 
This story is inspired by the memoir Destination: Freedom. The little helpless mouse, immigrating to a new forest, is how the author, Lily, sees herself and her mum, Sima, moving to a new country in Europe as war-refugees. The arrogant, selfish, power-hungry, judgmental, and unfriendly Leo represents the European countries and their way of treating refugees with rejection and disrespect.
Mousi’s desperate desire for acceptance and tolerance, a circle of loving friends and the feeling of belonging somewhere and of being integrated, is what many refugees/immigrants feel and struggle with. Some struggle just for a while, others for their entire life. But, as they say, there is always light at the end of the tunnel and this story, with a happy ending, is a good lesson to never give up on hope, faith, dreams, goals, wishes, and desires, despite the challenging obstacles, of destiny and our selfish, elbow-society!
Meanwhile, this lovely and meaningful story is also available in German, Italian and Spanish. Find all the links to the illustrated book in print and ebooks on my website www.LilyAmis.com

My book "Teddy & Lily" which is now also available in Italian is all about the values of love, friendship, honesty, integrity, and loyalty.
