Malala's first picture book will inspire young readers everywhere to find the magic all around them. As a child in Pakistan, Malala made a wish for a magic pencil. She would use it to make everyone happy, to erase the smell of garbage from her city, to sleep an extra hour in the morning. But as she grew older, Malala saw that there were more important things to wish for. She saw a world that needed fixing. And even if she never found a magic pencil, Malala realized that she could still work hard every day to make her wishes come true.… (més)

Educational rights activist and Nobel Peace Prize-winner Malala Yousafzai describes her childhood in Pakistan's Swat Valley in this lovely, deeply poignant and inspirational picture-book. Growing up, Malala wished that she had the magical pencil possessed by the hero of one of her favorite television shows, imagining all the ways she could improve both her own life and the world around her. When the Taliban took over her region, outlawing education for girls, she realized that although she didn't have a magical pencil, she did have a voice - a voice she could use to promote the right of girls to go to school. Attacked for her work, Malala survived, and went on to become one of the world's most recognizable figures in this field of activism...

Malala Yousafzai has written both an adult memoir, and a young reader's version of that adult memoir, but Malala's Magic Pencil is aimed at younger children, at the preschool and early primary school level. Given that this is so, it's important to note that some of the most disturbing elements of her story - the fact that the Taliban attempted to assassinate her, for instance - are treated very obliquely here. The episode is covered in a two-page spread, the right-hand page a solid black, with the words "My voice became so powerful that dangerous men tried to silence me. But they failed" on it, and the left-hand page showing Malala at a window, wearing a hospital bracelet. This seems like a good way to handle the issue given the age of the audience, concentrating on the motives behind the attack and its failure, rather than on its violence. The moving narrative here is well-matched by the gorgeous artwork of Kerascoët, a pseudonym used by the husband and wife team of Sébastien Cosset and Marie Pommepuy. The illustrations are very expressive, in the human scenes, but there is an element of visual magic too, when Malala is using her pen, and the endpapers are beautifully decorative. All in all, a lovely picture-book introduction to this important figure, one I would recommend to young children interested in their peers around the world, or to anyone searching for children's books that emphasize what a vital blessing access to educations is.

Malala Yousafzai is famous for her fight for female education in the face of Islamic extremism. I had previously read her autobiography, which was an amazing story. This tells the same tale but in a simplified and shortened version for children. It covers important topics that students need to be aware our issues in so many countries around the world still, such as poverty in third world countries, sexism and the struggle for female education, and the Taliban and Islamic extremism. Such horrible injustices are occurring in other countries, and many people in America are blissfully unaware. This story exposes students to those issues in a way that is hopeful, powerful, and moving, rather than scary. If our students are aware of these issues and see amazing women and young people, such as Malala, standing up against immeasurable odds successfully, they might be inspired to make a difference too.

Beautifully inspiring and moving. It shows children that small changes make big differences. ( )

This autobiography written by Malala Yousafzai tells her story of her fight for women's educational rights in her home country, which later spreads much further than that. Malala's story is child-friendly in this version, but still holds the correct amount of power and inspiration. It opens the eyes of many young children/adolescents to the social and cultural differences in countries. Malala's story is one that deserves to be heard all over the world for generations to come, and I hope that with the help of these books that will happen. ( )

In this autobiography, Malala Yousafzai begins with a TV show she watched as a young child in which the protagonist has a magic pencil that brings things into existence. She wishes for her own magic pencil to bring her mother nice dresses, her brothers a soccer ball, etc. Over time as she sees poverty and other struggles around her town, she wishes for peace and equality. She realizes that the best way to do this is make the magic come true herself, and she begins a writing campaign to make the world aware of the plight of young girls who are unable to attend school due to poverty and/or gender discrimination.

This book was so heartfelt that it did in fact make me cry. Being as this book is for young readers, Malala does not go into details in the main text but simply mentions how "dangerous men tried to silence" her, a statement on a starkly black page across from an illustration of Malala standing up in a hospital gown looking out the window. Her story ends optimistically and is certainly inspirational as others listen to her call. Her author's note contains some further motivation for readers: "Once, I wished for Sanju's magic pencil. Now I know that when you find your voice, every pencil can be magic. I hope that my story inspires you to find the magic in your own life and to always speak up for what you believe in. Magic is everywhere in the world -- in knowledge, beauty, love, peace. The magic is in you, in your words, in your voice."

The illustrations are beautiful and are even more striking for having an overlay of rose-gold images for any of the "magic" things that Malala dreams up. ( )
