:'Whoever we are, wherever we liveThese are the rights of every child under The sun, and the moon and the stars.'In November 1989 the United Nations formally adopted 54 principles which make up the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. From the right to a name and a nationality to the right to education and play and special protection for disabled children, the fourteen rights most pertinent to young children have been carefully chosen and interpreted here in simple language. 191 of the world's 193 countries have ratified the Convention making themselves legally bound to comply with its obligations. There is a wonderful international cast of acclaimed illustrators: from Britain, Shirley Hughes, Babette Cole, John Burningham and Peter Weevers; from the US Jerry Pinkney and Rachel Isadora; from Ireland PJ Lynch; French artist Philippe Dumas, Chilean illustrator Claudio Munoz; from Germany Henriette Sauvant; Indian artists Amrit and Rabindra K. D Kaur Singh; from Japan Satoshi Kitamura; Zimbabwe-born Ken Wilson Max; from China a brilliant new young artist Yang Twesi-yu. Each has illustrated a different right with an outstanding double page spread making a powerful and moving book that is both an important souvenir and a stunning picture book to be treasured.
