Kids Who Did: Real kids who ruled, rebelled, survived and thrived

AUD $19.99

A collection of true stories about kids and courage. Ordinary kids doing extraordinary things. Extraordinary kids trying to live ordinary lives. Real kids doing it tough.

When the future looks dark, courageous kids bring light and hope into the world. Forty true stories celebrate kids who have protested, prayed, rebelled, saved lives, earned a fortune, lost everything, become world-famous, or fought to survive war and oppression. Fearless kids, feral kids, Olympic champions, human-rights crusaders, climate-change warriors, princes and prisoners, workers and whiz-kids - they all show the true courage of kids.

From the distant past to the present moment, kids have made their mark on history; and now they're set to change the world.
