Janna Spark is a child psychologist and educator and here she conceives
an intriguing and insightful experiment. Over 40 famous people choose and copy
out selected children's poems and verses and have their writing studied by
the British Academy of Graphology. Each contributor reflects on their choice,
and what it meant to them as a child, and each has his or her handwriting
style scrutinized and dissected by the experts. It makes a fascinating read...

Proceeds from the book were/are donated towards the plight of the
children affected by events in Kosovo.
