As a child in Pakistan, Malala made a wish for a magic pencil. She would use it to make everyone happy, to erase the smell of garbage from her city, to sleep an extra hour in the morning. However, as she grew older, Malala saw that there were more important things to wish for. She saw a world that needed fixing. Malala realised that even if she never found a magic pencil, she could still work hard every day to make her wishes come true. This beautifully illustrated volume tells Malala's story for a younger audience and shows them the worldview that allowed Malala to hold on to hope even in the most difficult of times. Notes at the back give context for young readers and starting points for further learning.
