Top children’s writers have each contributed a powerful story to this collection for Amnesty International. In fourteen different ways Jamila Gavin, David Almond, Michael Morpurgo, Malorie Blackman, Eoin Colfer and others have written about an aspect of freedom thereby drawing attention to the predicament of children for whom many of them are only a dream. The point of each story is highlighted by the particle Article from the Human rights convention it illustrates.

With a Foreword by Jacqueline Wilson.
