The Breadwinner is a children's novel by Deborah Ellis. The title refers to the role of the protagonist, 11-year-old Parvana, who is forced by circumstances to be the breadwinner for her family in a war-torn Taliban era in Afghanistan.

An animated film adaptation was released in 2017, co-produced by Cartoon Saloon (The Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea), Aircraft Pictures Canada and Angelina Jolie.

Has nothing to do with that weird cartoon with the ducks.
