These are in no particular order, so, in English, in a different order: My Mother and Smoking by Asala Publishers (Lebanon); Fly Away Plane by Nahdet Misr (Egypt); When My Friend Got Sick by Yuki Press (Lebanon); Why Don’t I See What You See by Tala Educational Means (Lebanon); and Neglected Tips by Al Hadaek Group (Lebanon).

A strong showing for Lebanon and for Samar! Just based on the awesome cover, I am going to roll with Samar and Sinan’s  عندما مرضت صديقتي. Although I also have a weak spot for anything that might stop even one person from smoking around children.
