Description

See below for English description.

La définition de la paix est à la fois simple et complexe. Wallace Edwards propose une série d'illustrations riches en symbolisme qui incitera les jeunes à réfléchir sur la question et à concevoir leurs définitions personnelles.

 

Peace is a familiar word, its meaning both simple and complex. Here, Wallace Edwards explores peace, and invites young readers to think about what that means to them. In a series of linked questions and combined with Edwards' singular art, the concept of peace is picked up, shaken, turned all around, and carefully examined from every angle. The impact is engaging, delightful, thoughtful, and powerful -- in the perfect blend of whimsy and sophistication for which Edwards is known -- and it allows young readers to enter into this discussion with openness and a sense that there is no one answer and certainly no wrong answer.

Original title: What Is Peace?
