Peaceful Heroes Peaceful Heroes

Written by Jonah Winter
Illustrated by Sean Addy

Inspiring portraits of people who made a difference—with peace.

With our children
We long for heroes
With our children
We long for peace.

Inspired by these twin hopes, Jonah Winter and Sean Addy have created this tribute to fourteen people who risked their lives – bravely, passionately, and peacefully – to help others and make the world a better place.

Read this with your family and be inspired yourself. Because the world needs more Peaceful Heroes.


“Atop Addy’s powerful oil-and-collage portraits heightened with passionate swirls of brushwork, Winter pays fervent tribute to 14 nonviolent crusaders. . . . [Y]oung readers in need of role models will be hard put to find more courageous, selfless examples than this roster offers.” -- Kirkus Reviews

“‘We need a set of heroes who do not hurt people,’ writes Winter in his introduction to 14 short biographies of figures who have embraced nonviolence, each portrayed by Addy in stirring, sepia-toned collages. . . . [A]s a signpost to a richer understanding of peace, the collection has genuine value.” -- Publishers Weekly
