KIRKUS REVIEW

A vapid collection of pictures and wishes about peace and related topics (""I would wish for the ozone hole to close,"" ""I would like all cities to be designed for disabled people"") by children from 39 countries. The artwork, unlike the text, possesses some personality and imagination, but with a foreword by Nelson Mandela, an introduction by Boutros Boutros-Ghali, and an afterword by Kermit the Frog, this book was obviously created by a well-intentioned committee and made from the top down rather than from the bottom up. It may fare better on the coffee table than on the reading shelf. A portion of the proceeds from sales go toward UNICEF.
