La vera storia di una ragazza e del suo desiderio di cambiare il mondo
Quando Malala era solo una bambina e viveva in Pakistan, aveva un sogno: possedere una matita magica. Avrebbe voluto usarla per…
…disegnare una serratura sulla porta della cameretta e non far entrare i suoi fratelli.
…fermare il tempo e poter dormire un’ora in più ogni mattina.
…cancellare il cattivo odore dell’immondizia vicino a casa.
Ma mentre Malala cresceva, il mondo attorno a lei cambiava, proprio come i suoi desideri. Il suo diritto di frequentare la scuola era minacciato solo perché era una ragazza. E così, anziché una matita magica, Malala decise di prenderne in mano una vera. Da sola, nella sua cameretta, cominciò a raccontare le sfide che affrontava ogni giorno. Ben presto le sue parole fecero il giro del mondo, e i suoi desideri iniziarono ad avverarsi.
Malala Yousafzai, eroina internazionale, attivista per l’istruzione e la più giovane vincitrice di sempre del premio Nobel per la Pace, narra la sua straordinaria storia di ragazza cresciuta in una regione martoriata dalla guerra, eppure sempre capace di scorgere ovunque la magia della speranza.

Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Picture Book. Magic Pencil is a very special tool that was showcased in a tv serial during 2000-2004 in India. There was a boy who used to draw in his sketch book and it would come to life. Reading her book was the reminder of those childhood days.

Dice mi hija que porque escogí un libro tan triste.
I really enjoyed this book and let me tell you why: first, (American) children need to see different cultures in storybooks. Second, the illustrations--namely the bronze/gold leafing--is absolutely stunning. The book was brought to life by these little illustrative details. And finally,I just loved
I remember reading I am Malala , and how she told the tale of the magic pencil. This story truly proves how kind and unselfish she is, even as a young child. I love how she took that idea and turned it into a beautifully illustrated story.
Loved this book, which has such a poignant story and such beautiful illustrations! A must read that will touch one's hearts and minds... Maria Carmo, Lisbon 20 December 2017.
