Through pictures, David McPhail tells the inspirational story of a little boy who goes on a walk to deliver a letter. On the way, the boy passes many acts of war until he finally has had enough and puts an end to the violence. Ages 0-6.

It gets the point across with no words but I still prefer a book with words and sentences to this way of doing it.
The point it does get across is good though .
