Malala's first picture book will inspire young readers everywhere to find the magic all around them. As a child in Pakistan, Malala made a wish for a magic pencil. She would use it to make everyone happy, to erase the smell of garbage from her city, to sleep an extra hour in the morning. But as she grew older, Malala saw that there were more important things to wish for. She saw a world that needed fixing. And even if she never found a magic pencil, Malala realized that she could still work hard every day to make her wishes come true.

"Malala's Magic Pencil" may be a children's picture book but the theme is very grown-up. As she is growing up Malala wishes for a magic pencil. She wants the things she draws to come true. As she grows up her world changes and she now wishes good things for girls.She wants girls to be able to attend school. Brave Malala uses a regular pencil to write about the challenges girls faced in her country. Thus, an ordinary pencil becomes a magic pencil in the hands of this brave girl who goes on to win the Nobel Peace Prize.A very motivational book for youngsters, particularly young girls.
