  • "I am Malala, a girl from Pakistan who wants to make the world a better place for all"

    Meet Malala. She is a daughter, a sister, a writer, an activist and an inspiration to people around the world. This board book is an introduction to her incredible life and her inspirational work for the youngest readers and their families.

    A bold and simple text is followed by a detailed biography of Malala's life, and the book is stunningly illustrated by debut illustrator Mariam Quraishi.

Mariam grew up in Karachi, Pakistan and moved to Providence, Rhode Island to pursue a BFA in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her illustrations are inspired by the plants and textiles she grew up around and her favourite thing to paint is a champa tree in full bloom. Visit her online at and on Instagram @mariamque
