Silver Buttons, Paperback


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.
