Review quote

An absorbing book which in the age-old tradition of story telling, gets the point over to its young readers that not everyone in the world has the freedom they treat so lightly * Newbury Weekly News * Containing truly outstanding contributions from Morpurgo, Rita Williams-Garcia
and Margaret Mahy, the collection delivers tales that leave the reader, as Mahy
puts it, `with heads that spin inside with the surprise of life and the thrill
of words that jostled and danced freely - no matter what country you happened to
live in. * INIS * Frequently thought-provoking, these stories adeptly highlight the universal importance of human rights. * Publisher's Weekly *
