"Inspired by Amnesty International's letter-writing campaigns to help free people who have been jailed for expressing their opinion, [this nearly wordless] book tells the story of a man who is arrested during a peaceful protest. In solitary confinement, he begins to despair--until a bird delivers a letter of support written by somebody outside the prison. Every day more missives arrive until the prisoner escapes his fate on wings made of letters"--Amazon.com.

A great book to spark discussion at home or in the classroom about social justice and peaceful protest.
