Illustrated by Kerascoet
48 pages
Ages 5 to 8

Malala Yousafzia is a Pakistani activist and the youngest person ever to win a Nobel Prize. She is known for her human rights advocacy for the education of women and children, and her advocacy has grown into an international movement. As a child in Pakistan, Malala made a wish for a magic pencil. She would use it to make everyone happy, to erase the small of garbage from her city, to sleep an extra hour in the morning. But, as she grew older, Malala saw that even if she found a magic pencil, Malala realized that she could still work hard every day to make her wishes come true. This beautifully illustrated volume shows how Malala was able to hold on even in the most difficult of times.
