"Two stories of bravery in one beautiful book! Meet two brave young heroes of Pakistan who stood up for the right to freedom and education in this inspirational nonfiction picture book from acclaimed author-illustrator Jeanette Winter. One country: Pakistan. Two children: Iqbal Masih and Malala Yousafzai. Each was unafraid to speak out. He, against inhumane child slavery in the carpet trade. She, for the right of girls to attend school. Both were shot by those who disagreed with them--he in 1995, she in 2012. Iqbal was killed instantly; Malala miraculously survived and continues to speak out around the world. The stories of these two courageous children whose bravery transcended their youth are an inspiration to all"-- Provided by publisher.

From Library Staff

Pakistani kids who have stood up for justice.

Two biographies in one, as readers flip the book over when finished with one story to read the next, of children who stood up for what's right.

A weighty topic, deftly handled for younger readers. Winter underscores the importance of youth and their innate abilities to know and seek justice, while still acknowledging our dangerous world.
