  • Title
  • Only 10: Hussein Mawgan Watson Mrs Nash
  • Hussein´s first day of school
  • Who is he?
  • Anything you don´t like about school Hussein?
  • Bruce attacks hussein
  • I am a soldier
  • Stop it Bruce
  • Pearl finds Hussein at the plant nursery
  • “See? It's growing. They’re all growing.’’
  • When the teacher tries talking to Hussein, he does not say much and looks out the window. He seems very shy. The other kids think he is mysterious and call him ´The Shah´. 
  • Hussein goes to the swimming carnival
  • Its alright Hussein
  • Bruce starts to tease Hussein but he doesn't react, so he attacks Hussein with a ruler. Hussein stands tall and says "I am a soldier", acting very tough. 
  • Pearl's sister dies
  • Pearl sees Hussein by himself at the plant nursery and he isn't so tough. He is smelling and touching the fruit. He says“See? It's growing. They’re all growing.’’ He seems quite emotional. Perhaps he comes from a county where fruit no longer grows.
  • At the swimming carnival Hussein is scared when the starting pistol goes off. He is trembling and looking for holes in the roof. He dismantles the gun like a professional. Has he been in some kind of danger or war?
  • After Pearl's sister dies, Hussein knows exactly how to comfort her, like he's experienced this before. He becomes friends with her and then everyone else. That is the last time the kids call him "The Shah".  Hussein opens up more and reveals his war scars at the next swimming carnival
