The Stamp Collector

A haunting account of two Asian writers jailed for their political views reveals the occasional power of stories to earn freedom for prisoners. The stamps in the title represent the letters from distant writers touched by the prisoners’ stories. Eerie, washed-out illustrations provide a perfect complement to the brooding but hopeful tale. Ages eight and up.
