    ARTICLE 1

    The right to be untidy, scruffy, covered in scratches, hyper ...'


    A funny, quirkily illustrated and heartwarming list of the rights of boys and girls, presented as a flipbook to be read from either end.

    Endorsed by Amnesty International Ireland 

    A book for those who believe in gender equality, self-expression and the right to be who we are.

    Girls, just like boys, have the right to be scruffy, untidy, hyper, to do any job they like, not to be princesses, to love whoever they like.

    Boys have as much right as girls to cry, to play with dolls, to wear pink, to like reading, not to be superheroes, to fall in love with anyone they like.


    PRAISE FOR DECLARATIONS

    ‘Possibly the best kids book ever … two books in one and it’s FANTASTIC’ – Roisín Ingle, journalist

    ‘Fiction for the six-plus crew is often highly gendered, so Elisabeth Brami and Estelle Billon-Spagnol’s non-fiction manifesto … is incredibly welcome as a title that draws attention to gender stereotyping. It encourages readers to remember that gender stereotypes affect everyone; that just as girls should have the right to have any job they like and stand up for themselves, boys too must have “the right to cry and to be hugged” and “the right not to be a superhero every day”… The vibrant and funny illustrations take the potentially preachy edge off this important book for the under-10s.’ – The Irish Times

    ‘An important book that deserves a special place in every classroom across the globe as a reminder of our equal rights, and to encourage us not to be restricted by expectation or particular stereotypes, but to do what we enjoy doing.’ – RTÉ Junior Book Club

    ‘The book does a fantastic job of spreading a message of equality without being preachy or insulting to anyone’s faith.  There’s really not much else to say except buy it now.  A must read for all ages.’ – John Ryan

    Elisabeth Brami was born in Warsaw. After graduate studies in humanities and literature, she became a psychologist. She has been practising since 1974 in a Day Hospital for teenagers in the Paris region. Married and a mother of three children, she became a children's author in 1990 and was then published by Bordas. Since then she has continued to write and some of her works have been translated in the United States, Germany and Japan. Elisabeth Brami is a member of the charter of youth authors and illustrators and participates in writing workshops.
