Publisher Description

As a child in Pakistan, Malala made a wish for a magic pencil that she could use to redraw reality. She would use it to give gifts to her family, to erase the smell from the rubbish dump near her house, to sleep an extra hour in the morning. As she grew older, Malala wished for bigger and bigger things. She saw a world that needed fixing. And even if she never found a magic pencil, Malala realized that she could still work hard every day to make her wishes come true. This beautifully illustrated picture book tells Malala's story, in her own words, for a younger audience and shows them the worldview that allowed her to hold on to hope and to make her voice heard even in the most difficult of times.

Author Biography

Since Malala Yousafzai was born in 1997 in Pakistan, she has seen her country transformed from a once peaceful land to a hotbed of terrorism. Malala, who now lives in Birmingham, England, intends to devote her life to the good of the people and her belief that all girls deserve an education.

Review

"Empowering, hopeful and perfectly pitched for a young audience, this is an inspiring read for children everywhere." The School Run "This beautifully illustrated book is a truly inspiring read for youngsters." The Sun "With its ethereal illustrations and dreamy-looking heroine, Malala's Magic Pencil has the appearance of a fairy-tale classic." The Telegraph "An enchanting debut...a timely reminder that happy endings aren't just the preserve of fairytales." The Observer "Warm, tender and brave, this beautiful version of Malala's inspiring story should be something every parent reads with their child." Booktrust "Malala's Magic Pencil tells the beguiling tale of Malala Yousafzai's dream of a magic pencil and her discovery of education's transformative power, in a beautiful paean to children and their potential for heroic change. Husband-and-wife duo Kerascoeet's watercolour illustrations, with their golden flourishes and bursts of pink, perfectly complement the text... a clear and resonant call to arms." The Guardian - Best New Picture Books and Novels
