Published in association with Amnesty International, with a foreword by David Tennant and John Boyne, this stunning book includes art work from Axel Scheffler, Peter Sis, Satoshi Kitamura, Alan Lee, Polly Dunbar, Jackie Morris, Debi Gliori, Chris Riddell, Catherine and Laurence Anholt and many more!

Publisher Review

"A must read book.""Saying 'a picture is worth a thousand words' certainly applies here - each of the carefully drawn illustrations conveys a really strong message and repays close attention.""So amazingly compiled, the illustrators list reads like a "who's who" of all our favourite talented folk, and the lessons imparted here - not dumbed down, but imparted so effectively for a children's book, are more important now than ever.""A beautifully diverse and vital addition to any bookshelf. The variety of illustrations is a delight, while the content is essential knowledge for children to learn." "A beautifully diverse and vital addition to any bookshelf.
