What you say (and how you say it) has the power to change the world. Democracy gives you that power. Democracy is people power.

But does democracy really matter? How does it work? And what exactly is democracy, anyway?! Get set to speak up and learn how you can create positive change in your corner of the world.

The brilliant new picture book from bestselling Australian author–illustrator Philip Bunting, created in consultation with The Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House, Canberra.

Democracy! is full of fascinating and engaging information about democracy, and provides young readers with easily digestible information about the importance of their voice. It is filled with handy tips on how to engage in community discussions, from petitions to peaceful protests, and explains the history of democracy in a funny and positive way.
