This publication is dedicated to the children of the world who have so much to offer. It is the responsibility of all adults to provide an earth fit for the potential of children to be realised.

The creativity in this book is a tribute to what can be achieved when dedicated teachers lead pupils desirous of knowledge.

The paintings published are the creations of the children of Mozyr, Belarus and in particular from the wonderful Art School, Mozyr, under the directorship of Larisa A. Maltseva. The poetry was written by the children and adults of Northern Ireland and the messages were sent from our friends around the world who believe as we do.

Our thanks to Eddie Gornall for his inspired cover and preface image : and to our patrons and sponsors who enthuse us to achieve more.

As for the fairytale - the ideas and experiences of one added to by the magic of another.
