The refugee hero: What do children think?

Imad Elabdala, a Syrian granted asylum in Sweden, has written the world’s first children's therapy book with a refugee hero, designed to tackle mental health problems among displaced children.

A class in Stockholm was joined by children from a refugee camp in the city to hear Imad tell the story. This is what they thought.

This was produced as part of BBC News School Report.
