About the book...

There are more than seven billion people in this world of ours. They are running, buzzing, busy, engaged in their lives and seemingly crawling like little ants in the grass everywhere. 

The author aptly describes the diversity of people exploring their shapes and sizes, strange things that appear on their bodies, their clothing habits in the different cultures, their mood types (happy, gloomy, scared, confident), their talents and gifts (singing, storytelling, writing), and the spectrum of things that they believe in (God, secret powers, Santa Claus, nothing at all), just to name a few.  

The beautifully detailed watercolour illustrations depict flocks of humankind, both young old, from every country, going about and engaging in their daily lives.   The conclusion drawn is that even though all these people exist.... guess what? No two are exactly alike.  Each and every person is unique so therefore you are one-of-a-kind too.  The book certainly is a  celebration of multiculturalism.  I highly recommend it.
