Summary
When Malala was a child in Pakistan, she wished for a magic pencil. She would use it to . . . draw a lock on her door to keep her brothers out; stop time so she could sleep an extra hour every morning; erase the smell of the rubbish dump near her home. But as Malala grew, her world changed and so did her wishes. Her right to attend school was threatened - just because she was a girl. Instead of a magic pencil, Malala now picked up a real one. She wrote alone in her room about the challenges she faced, but people from all over the world read her words. And her wishes started to come true
Summary
As a child in Pakistan, Malala made a wish for a magic pencil. She would use it to make everyone happy, to erase the smell of garbage from her city, to sleep an extra hour in the morning. But as she grew older, Malala saw that there were more important things to wish for. She saw a world that needed fixing. And even if she never found a magic pencil, Malala realized that she could still work hard every day to make her wishes come true
