Desmond Tutu

The Little Book of Joy
  • The Little Book of Joy

  • Joy is the warm tingly feeling of the sun tickling your toes in the morning.
    It's the giggly, squiggly feeling when you are doing something silly.
    Even when you wake to the rain and your joy is washed away, it's waiting at the bottom of the puddle.

    Two friends, the late Archbishop Desmond Tutu and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, share this uplifting picture book story about their childhoods, showing young readers how to find joy even in uncertain times.

    This is a charming story of how every child has joy inside them, even when it sometimes hides, and how we can find it, keep it close, and grow it by sharing it with the world.

    This picture book adaptation of the international bestseller, The Book of Joy, is full of the humour, friendship, and deep affection between two spiritual leaders. It is a timely gift for challenging times and a reminder that joy is abundant - no matter what challenges we face - if we only know how to find it.

    Vibrantly illustrated by award-winning Rafael López, this is a perceptive, joyful hug of a picture book, perfect to reassure and inspire all young readers.

Desmond Mpilo Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus of Southern Africa, became a prominent leader in the crusade for justice and racial reconciliation in South Africa. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009. Archbishop Tutu was regarded as a leading moral voice and an icon of hope. Throughout his life, he cared deeply about the needs of people around the world, teaching love and compassion for all.
