To mark World Sight Day 2020 and their 'Glasses in Classes' campaign, Clearly is publishing ‘Through the Looking Glasses: Stories About Seeing Clearly'. Thirty five amazing authors and illustrators from across the world have contributed to this collection of stories, illustrations and memoirs about seeing clearly.
There are over 300 million children in the world with short sight, many of whom are unable to enjoy the simple pleasure of reading a book. Clearly's 'Glasses in Classes' campaign aims to get sight tests, affordable glasses and other treatments into every school in the world to give children the best start in life.
To promote this campaign, the charity has created a collection of stories, illustrations and memoirs for children from contributors including Quentin Blake, David Baddiel, Lauren Child, Cressida Cowell, Michael Morpurgo, Dermot O'Leary and many others from around the world.
Clearly launched the book across their social channels at 8am UK time on Thursday, 8th October, followed soon after by the frst of their Bedtime Stories of readings from the anthology, read by a mix of authors and celebrities, including Michelle Yeoh, Caroline Dusable and Billie Jean King.
