About Nadine Kaadan
Nadine Kaadan was born in Damascus, Syria and she currently lives in London. Since the age of 8, Nadine hasn’t stopped writing and illustrating children’s books - she simply knew that it was her calling in life
Her book Answer me, Leila! won the Anna Lindh award for the best fiction book for children with special needs in 2011, and is now being used to teach the Arabic language at Harvard University and Tufts University. Her latest title The Jasmine Sneeze, published by Lantana Publishing based in London, is one of the first children’s books in the UK that touches on Syria’s long and proud culture and heritage in a period of history marred by war. The book has been featured in various literature festivals in the UK, including the Cambridge Literature Festival and the Just So Festival, and it was also reviewed in the Guardian as one that ‘…sheds welcome light on Syria…and is beautifully illustrated and enormously entertaining’.
