The debut non-fiction title from bestselling author of The Boy at the Back of the Class, Onjali Q. Raúf. This is your hope handbook: a guide to being kind, showing empathy and making the world a better place.
"No one is too small to make a change."
Growing up, there is so much out of our control and so much we can feel helpless about. But together, we can make a difference. In this inspiring and practical handbook, bestselling children's author and Human Rights campaigner, Onjali Raúf, shares her top ten ways for creating change.
With the help of her favourite fictional characters and some of the most inspiring people she has ever met, Onjali invites readers to dive in and discover everything there is to know about kindness, empathy, friendship and fighting for the things that matter. (Plus cool stuff like X-ray vision and deflecting negative forces.)
Because with a bit of compassion, a big dollop of hope and even the smallest act of kindness, we can all make the world a better place. Hope is on the horizon; you just have to find it.
Parental guidance recommended: issues related to discrimination, injustice and prejudice are included.

I am a children's book illustrator living in Worthing with my lovely boyfriend and kitten.
I absolutely love what I do and especially love the beginning of projects when i can let my imagination go and create the characters and the worlds they live in.
I have been lucky enough to work in the word of children's publishing for the last 6 years and have had a lot of fun meeting all the talented writers, designers and editors who I get to work with.
