Here are the human rights we love - in pictures

Published on: 9 Awst 2017

Chris Riddell has illustrated a little picture book with the big task of asking children to think about their freedoms and rights. And – predictably – it's completely wonderful.

Published by Amnesty International, My Little Book of Big Freedoms uses 16 simple but beautiful illustrations to explore the issue.

The former Children's Laureate writes inside:

'I've drawn some pictures for you. Each of them shows one of our freedoms and how it can help each of us when we need it. I hope you like them.'

You can see a few of his beautiful drawings in the gallery below.
