An empowering picture book that encourages children to feel that they can have a positive impact on the future in a troubled world, inspired by real-life activists and campaigners.

“Somewhere, out there, in the wide, wide world, a child like you is watching …”

Four brave children watch, listen, search, and feel, as they experience the inequalities, dangers, and injustices of life in our world.

Inspired by real-life activists and campaigners Greta Thunberg, Yusra Mardini, Marley Dias, and Iqbal Masih, each of these children are filled with courage, determination and hope.

They will campaign to help save the planet, show that refugees can contribute, and show leadership in sport in their new land, they will build a library of 1,000 books depicting black girls, they will speak out against the outrage of child slavery.
