Silver Buttons

By Bob Graham

Multiple award-winning and bestselling author-illustrator Bob Graham beautifully captures a world vision in one solitary moment.

Winner of the Australian Prime Minister's Literary Award. Endorsed by Amnesty International UK. From the multiple award-winning author-illustrator of How to Heal a Broken Wing and A Bus Called Heaven, comes a powerful and poignant celebration of the small moments in life – moments in which we sense the greatest significance, moments when we can see the big picture. At 9.59 on Thursday morning, Jodie draws a duck. Just as she is about to add one final silver button to the duck's boots, her little brother takes his first step. At this exact same moment, a man buys bread, a soldier leaves home, a baby is being born... Here is a book, a story, a philosophy so simply told and yet – in true and inimitable Bob Graham style – so rich with emotion and meaning.
