Malala's Magic Pencil

Updated: Sep 12, 2020

Written by the international icon, education activist and the youngest-ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize herself, Malala Yousafzai tells her inspiring story for younger audience.

Growing up in Pakistan, Malala wishes for a magic pencil so that she could make everyone happy. She wishes to erase the garbage from her city, and to sleep in an extra hour. But as Malala grows she sees that there are more important things to wish for, and even if she never finds a magic pencil, Malala realises that she could still work hard everyday to make her dreams come true.

Beautifully illustrated by Kerascoët, Malala has written an empowering picture book that will inspire young readers to find magic in their surroundings and to hold on to hope even in the most difficult of times.

A truly graceful and important picture book.

One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.
