The Good Guys: 50 Heroes Who Changed the World with Kindness

by Rob Kemp, illustrated by Paul Blow
£12.99   hardback  Hachette Children's Group (Wren & Rook) (2018)

The Good Guys: 50 Heroes Who Changed the World with Kindness by Rob Kemp, illustrated by Paul Blow A gloriously illustrated celebration of men who have changed the world with kindness and compassion.
 
A life-changing book that shows kids it's cool to be kind.
 
A gloriously illustrated celebration of heroes who have changed the world with kindness and compassion, from David Attenborough to Nelson Mandela, Oskar Schindler to Usain Bolt.
 
What if we celebrated boys for their kindness as well their strength? For their generosity as well as their success? For their loyal friendship as well as their charm?
 
The Good Guys introduces us to 50 heroes who have showed that changing the world doesn't require a sword or a corporate jet. Readers will find stories of extraordinary men including Muhammad Ali, Professor Green, Patrick Stewart and Lionel Messi, as well as unsung heroes such as James Harrison, who has spent fifty years donating his rare blood to save millions of babies.
 
There's even a section celebrating ten boys who didn't let their young age stop them from helping others, such as Matthew Kaplan, who responded to his brother's bullies by setting up an anti-bullying programme for schools. The Good Guys celebrates the feats of heroes and everyday men, and will show kids that it really is cool to be kind.
