So happy that my mother, Toor Pekai, who is learning English, is the first one to read the book. pic.twitter.com/VzoQNDyJ3o- Malala (@Malala) August 3, 2017
Malala also shared a picture of herself with the book, which will be released in October.
Opened the mail and thrilled to find a copy of my first picture book, Malala's Magic Pencil! pic.twitter.com/Zwoa1f28cC- Malala (@Malala) August 3, 2017
Malala's Magic Pencil is about Malala's childhood wish for a magic pencil that would "make everyone happy, to erase the smell of garbage from her city, to sleep an extra hour in the morning," according to the book's publisher, Hachette. ""But as she grew older, Malala saw that there were more important things to wish for. She saw a world that needed fixing."
Malala Yousafzai became the youngest-ever Nobel laureate in 2014 when she received the Nobel Peace Prize at the age of 17.
Malala's picture with her mother has been retweeted about 2,600 times and 'liked' over 23,000 times on Twitter. It has also received a ton of positive comments.
Dear Malala, Beautiful mother and you. I write children's books, and we live in Buffalo, NY. We are so happy you will be here soon. xo- AmyLudwigVanDerwater (@amylvpoemfarm) August 3, 2017
