A new generation of children... They are not afraid of taking responsibilities any more, but they are rather keen on addressing problems. Claire is one of them. The moment she sees the broken swing and the cracked slide in the children's park in her neighbourhood, she decides to take action. Not surprisingly, her way of reaching a solution is an interesting and innovative one. You will love the journey of Claire, a strong and ambitious girl, so much that you will want to read this book over and over again.

Industry Reviews
"Claire writes another letter but this time she involves her community in her campaign and for once her efforts are rewarded. This beautifully illustrated story celebrates young change-makers and light-heartedly questions the effect of modern technology on children while exploring what really makes a difference in their lives." -- Writing WA
Despite the fact that I am an adult reader, I felt empowered by Claire Malone Changes the World, a children's book that really packs a punch. I look forward to celebrating the themes and achievements of Claire Malone, both in my school setting and with my own children. We definitely need more texts of this calibre and subject matter out there in the children's picture book sphere, well done Nadia L King! -- Mrs B's Book Reviews
Younger kids need to be given the chance to enjoy their childhood without feeling they have to solve all the problems of the world. Claire Malone wants to bring about so much change that she is well on her way to burning out! Fortunately, she learns to help at a level more appropriate to her age. A gentle guiding hand in the form of a story like Claire Malone Changes the World will help kids feel empowered, while also reminding them of the importance to make time for things like friendship and play. This picture book contains a subtle but vital and timely message for both children and adults. Published by Dixi Books, it is gorgeously illustrated by Alisa Knatko. -- Elizabeth Foster, Author
Claire is a little girl who sees the world as a bigger place than most youngsters. She notices all sorts of things, some of which don't seem quite right. So, with her trusty cat, Marmalade, she sets about to address these situations by writing letters -- hundreds of them -- to decision-makers who she believes have the ability to effect change. By giving her character, Claire such a dedicated interest in the environment in which she is growing up, King creates a role model for children who may at times feel powerless when confronted with 'big issues'. It would certainly be remiss not to mention the delightful illustrations of Alisa Knatko; they are absolutely enchanting in their rendition and design quality; and the artist's depiction of Claire is exactly as I imagined her to be. -- Jennifer Mors, Children's Book Reviewer
Drawing on themes of persistence, compassion, the affects of technology and the importance of childhood play, author, Nadia King, and illustrator, Alisa Knatko, brilliantly combine to highlight the savviness of one young girl determined to work for the greater good of the world. With the uprise of social media and the internet, today's youth are becoming more and more encouraged to be the advocates for their own future. This is where youngsters like Claire Malone come along. -- Just Kids' Lit
Sometimes the simplest stories are the hardest to tell but Nadia L King achieves perfection in very few words. Claire Malone Changes the World is the delightfully quirky story of a young girl whose ingenuity and persistence create unexpected changes in the world around her. Inspiring and entertaining, this beautiful story is perfectly complemented by Alisa Knatko's delightful illustrations. Congratulations to Nadia and Dixi Books -- I can only hope this is the first of a very popular series. -- Moyra Irving, Author of Amelia Trott and the Earth Watchers
This book is the progressive, modern book our youngest readers are looking for. Providing a lesson that even the smallest person and action can make an impact. I'm also inspired by the book's message about a digital generation that is both swamped with information about the sadness and destruction of the world, but also using that same power to harness change.The illustrations are beautiful and the quality of the book is obviously a labour of love for Dixi Books. -- Shirley Marr, Author of Little Jiang
Claire does everything she can when she comes across injustice. And this is her great strength. It seems to me that modern children do not need to reminded that they can do a lot. The task of parents and this book is to tell and show that even small efforts can lead to fantastic results. -- Alya Khomenok, Children's Author
