This is a great introduction to international history and how individuals have changed the world today. People of Peace is an exemplar factoid of a reference book. It gives brief but insightful histories, a biography and key facts surrounding notable leaders, activists, creatives and ordinary heroes who have impacted the world in big ways. The illustration and infographic style are zany and bright, making the information more memorable and putting names to the faces of such iconic figures. The international theme explores the lives of icons including Nelson Mandela, Malala Yousafzai and Victor Hugo for well-rounded, factual fun promoting kindness and inclusivity.
