“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.” —Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Every morning Desmond the mouse wakes with the sunrise and spends the day playing in the beautiful meadow where he lives. And every night he goes to sleep under the starry sky. That is, until one night when he wakes up and finds an elephant asleep on his tail! Desmond asks for help from every kind of animal passing by, but no one wants to disturb the sleeping giant. How will Desmond get free?
With Matt Meyer's thoughtful story and lush watercolour illustrations by artist Khim Fam, DESMOND GETS FREE introduces young readers to timely and nuanced concepts of justice and liberation in a kid-friendly and accessible way. Ages 4–8.
