Reviews

"An accessible, bite-sized look at powerful change."--Kirkus Reviews
"Camlot invites readers to visualize soldiers switching pistols for pillows, painted lines for battle lines, and like peaceful exchanges--and for each scenario, describes an actual, thematically related anti-war initiative."--Booklist
"This salute to people who exemplify peace and reconciliation begins each story with a question."--Publishers Weekly
"The stories feature brave people from many different places across the globe, and both the book's introduction and conclusion encourage readers to ask questions and use their imagination to make the world a better place."--School Library Journal
"Such an admirable concept underlies this book, and the important stories remind the reader that there is always more than one answer to something."--School Library Connection
"Each entry illuminates a story of peace and compromise, and shows what can be done when the world is pictured in a hopeful and inspired way."--Sal's Fiction Addiction
