Thanks to NetGalley for allowing me the privilege of reading this book. Wow! In the space of a few short, concisely-drawn pages, this book pulls more on the heartstrings than books many times it's length; this book literally moved me to tears as I read it. (And ironic that I was approved and finis...

5★ Disclaimer: I’m a member of Amnesty. This is a picture book, and if a picture is worth a thousand words, this one is a doorstop of a story!

Incredible. I'm speechless. Letters to a prisoner is a silent graphic novel written for the Amnesty International's "Write for Rights" campaign, to supporto those who've been imprisoned for expressing their ideas.

This is a really beautiful, easy to understand book about human rights and Amnesty International. This it would be a great classroom book for teaching about human rights, empathy and connotation since it is wordless. Thank you NetGalley for an ARC of this book. All opinions are my own.

ARC Copy to Review....Decent introduction on human rights for the kiddies, and the wordless approach makes the narrative more universal/with out regionalism-language. The watercolour illustration is beautiful, gentle and "stylized" to the point. I would see this being used as classroom material.

To leave you without hope, as this wordless story tells the story of one prisoner, torn from his family for believing in something different from what the government believes in. And then, he gets a...
