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.

Reviews

Every picture book tells its own story, and through them all, Bob Graham encourages readers to reflect on, and reach out to, the world around them -- Julia Eccleshare * Guardian * "This celebration of an instant in time and the variety of events contained within it is beautifully conveyed through Graham's delicate and vivid illustrations, bringing these often overlooked yet important moments to life." * Amnesty.org,uk *
