Review:

Not since Anne Frank has a child so effectively borne witness to the madness of adult reality."-- "Kirkus Reviews"Reads... like an adventure story.... With a controversial, vivid style that is mercifully free of jargon or cynicism, Kielburger introduces readers to the children and reformers he met during his trip through Bangladesh, Thailand, Nepal, India, and Pakistan."-- "Christian Science Monitor"The tales are gripping, the atrocities shocking, and the children inspiring.... The prose is natural, engaging, and very much Mr. Kielburger--he writes as he speaks. The stories of the enslaved children are exciting, very real, and often unutterably sad."-- "National Post"Graig has become a Pied Piper, inspiring students in hundreds of schools across the United States and Canada to join his crusade."-- "New York Times
