The International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) presents a collection by scholars of children's literature about outstanding story and picture books that explore issues of identity, belonging and empathy in many parts of the world. The books discussed are as original and exciting in form as they are in content, developing children's literacies while widening their horizons. The Foreword is by Wally De Donker, IBBY President, and the book features Cao Wenxuan's acceptance speech for the Hans Christian Andersen Award 2016, in which he likens children's books to 'another form of housebuilding'.
