In a perfect world, this book would not exist. But we do not live in a perfect world. At any given moment of any given day, there are people dying from natural disasters over which we have no control. Beyond natural disasters we add disasters of our making, but even if we all learn to live in peace, there will still be millions of people who need help. The illustrators who have contributed to this startling book have all done so for free. All royalties earned will be donated to the Save the Children organisation in Australia. Illustrations by Colin Thompson, Tohby Riddle, Gaye Chapman, Richard Yot, Kim Gamble, Judy Horacek, Tom Byrne, Terry Denton, Emma Quay, Bruce Whatley, Dee Texidor, Anna Pignataro, David Legge and Chris Mould.
