Description

What does it mean to be free? Top authors donate their talents to explore the question in a compelling collection to benefit Amnesty International. (Age 10 and up) A boy who thinks that school is "slavery" learns the true meaning of the word when he stumbles on a secret child-labor factory. A Palestinian boy, mute from trauma, releases kites over a wall to a hilltop settlement, each bearing a message of peace. This inspiring, engaging anthology gathers an international roster of authors to explore such themes as asylum, law, education, and faith -- from a riveting tale of an attempt to find drinking water after Hurricane Katrina; to a chilling look at a future where microchips track every citizen's every move; to a hilarious police interrogation involving the London Tower, the Crown Jewels, and a Ghanaian boy with a passion for playing marbles. Features an introduction by British writer Jacqueline Wilson. With stories by: David Almond Ibtisam Barakat Malorie Blackman Theresa Breslin Eoin Colfer Roddy Doyle Ursula Dubosarsky Jamila Gavin Margaret Mahy Patricia McCormick Michael Morpurgo Sarah Mussi Meja Mwangi Rita Williams-Garcia
