More About the Author

Malorie Blackman is acknowledged as one of today's most imaginative and convincing writers for young readers. The novels in her Noughts & Crosses sequence have won several awards, including the Red House Children's Book Award, and she has won many other awards for her books. Both Hacker and Thief! won the Young Telegraph/Gimme 5 Award - Malorie is the only author to have won this award twice - while Hacker also won the WH Smith Mind-Boggling Books Award in 1994.

Her work has appeared on screen, with Pig-Heart Boy, which was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, being adapted into a BAFTA-winning TV serial. Malorie has also written a number of titles for younger readers including Cloud Busting, which won the Smarties Silver Award, The Monster Crisp Guzzler and Whizziwig. In 2005, Malorie was honoured with the Eleanor Farjeon Award in recognition of her distinguished contribution to the world of children's books. In 2008, she was then honoured with an OBE for her services to Children's Literature.

Product Description

Amazon Review

Amnesty International is a worldwide, voluntary organisation which campaigns for human rights across the globe. In this stunning collection of writings the contributors, including Malorie Blackman, James Berry, Geraldine McCaughrean and Quentin Blake,show that the principles of Amnesty International--justice, freedom and equality--apply to all of us in our daily lives and not just in the political arena.

The poems and stories in this stunning, colourful and hopeful little book celebrate the will and power of individuals to force changes in the world around them, and cleverly combines the best storytelling traditions with a thoroughly modern ideal.

With stunning illustrations which, without preaching or patronising, each touch on the issues that Amnesty International holds dear, Dare to be Different is a bright and passionate dip-into book which children and adults will love to read alone or together, and one which will take pride of place on any self-respecting bookshelf. (At least 5 per cent of the proceeds will go to Amnesty International). (Ages 8 and over) --Susan Harrison
