Sue Stone's life hit rock bottom in the late 1990s, both emotionally and financially. She was desperately unhappy and on the verge of losing everything. Not accepting that this was going to be 'it', she set about researching ways to improve her life.

Malala's Magic Pencil

Author: Malala Yousafzai

Publisher: Puffin Books (2017)

As a child in Pakistan, Malala made a wish for a magic pencil that she could use to redraw reality. She would use it to give gifts to her family, to erase the smell from the rubbish dump near her house, to sleep an extra hour in the morning. As she grew older, Malala wished for bigger and bigger things. 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. This beautifully illustrated picture book tells Malala's story, in her own words, for a younger audience and shows them the worldview that allowed her to hold on to hope and to make her voice heard even in the most difficult of times.

Metamorphosis

Author: Polly Morland

Publisher: Profile Books (2016)

Most of us would like to change something about ourselves, although we often feel that we can’t. But change is not an event – it is a process at which we are more skilled than we realise, a metamorphosis that lies within our grasp. Why does a violinist become a police officer, or a monk fall in love? How does someone lose eighteen stone in as many months or a follower of radical Islam turn his back on holy war? What new life can a heartbroken woman find in a new name? And how does a family adapt to the brain injury that changes their son or brother beyond recognition. In Metamorphosis, these and other tales combine with a wealth of smart thinking from psychology, philosophy, literature and science to explore how true stories of ordinary and extraordinary transformation can help us to live better, happier lives.
