Grownup wars – children’s stories Present-day conflicts Which one is Malala? author: Renata Piątkowska illustrator: Maciej Szymanowicz age: 8-14 size: 165x235 mm pages: 64 first edition: 2015 rights sold: Lithuania Smiley, eager to play and to sing hits by Justin Bieber – this is the Malala we meet. The only thing that distinguishes her from her friends is that she doesn’t cover her face with a scarf. Is that a good reason to shoot a teenage girl in the face? It soon becomes clear that Malala is no ordinary teenager, but a blogger who – by describing the state of education for girls in Pakistan – exposed herself to the Taliban. A touching story about the strength that lies dormant in each one od us and how we should fight to help those who are weaker than us. Malala has proven that just one brave person is enough to inspire multitudes.

Let us pick our books and pens. They are our most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the entire world. Taken from Malala Yousafzai’s speech to the UN in 2013
