About the Book

A classic picture-book edition of My Little Book of Big Freedoms illustrated by the former Waterstones Children’s Laureate Chris Riddell, published in partnership with Amnesty International UK.

We all want a good life, to have fun, to be safe, happy and fulfilled. For this to happen, we need to look after each other and stand up for the basic human rights that we often take for granted. This book features 16 different freedoms, each accompanied by beautiful illustrations. It shows why our human rights are so important – they help to keep us safe. Every day.

Featuring a stunning new cover and full-colour artwork for the first time.
