Once Upon a Time: Reflections on Childhood
Vince Powell, Greg Watts
Bloomsbury Academic, Sep 30, 2005 - Religion - 128 pages
Presented and introduced by Michael Aspell
Once Upon a Time is a book about childhood.
To raise money for the NSPCC over one hundred celebrities from sport, show business, religion and business have written touching accounts of their own childhoods. Some of these are simply hilarious but a number are as touching as Dickens and pull at the heartstrings. But children are our future and they need to be protected, so in celebrating childhood this book is also celebrating the future.
In all these accounts these is an understanding that children must be at the forefront of our attention and that they can give us a glimpse of God's peace in a turbulent and strife-torn modern world. The NSPCC fights on their behalf.
There could be no better theme for a book designed to raise money for NSPCC - to alleviate the suffering and deprivation of young people the world over. Today, children are too often the victims of hardship and cruelty and this book will drive home the message with poignancy.
Contributors include Cilla Black, Gary Lineker, Ryan Giggs, Paula Radcliffe, Lionel Blue and Jilly Cooper>
