A precocious girl makes it her mission to find out why the women in her family wear hijabs in this heartwarming yet funny picture book celebrating Muslim women, curious children, and family love.

Noor loves her mum and all the other hijabi women in her family but wonders why they wear headscarves. Is it to hide snacks for later? Or because they’re super spies hiding their secret identities?

Full of curiosity, Noor sets out to find her answer, but her family are all busy and have no time to answer this important question. Just as Noor is ready to give up on her quest, her Ammu arrives home and knows just the thing to say to crack the case wide open.
Farhana Islam was born and raised in Newcastle upon Tyne and currently residing in Birmingham, UK. She is a primary school teacher with a passion for telling stories and empowering diverse voices. Noor Needs to Know! is her debut picture book.
