HUMAN RIGHTS FOR CHILDREN Picture book and graphic novel illustrators are masters of storytelling, helping children to perceive, interpret and understand deep and complex ideas. As part of Amnesty International's programme on fiction and human rights, illustrators Debi Gliori and Chris Riddell join educationalist Prue Goodwin to discuss how graphic novels and illustrated books can explore difficult issues and empower children to stand up for themselves and each other.
