About Tiny Stories
To commemorate the 2016 Universal Children's Day (20 November) and celebrate UNICEF's anniversary, authors from around the world were challenged to each compose a tiny story—seven lines long—addressing the theme, "What I want for every child." The Tiny Stories, written by renowned authors, including Paulo Coelho, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Christina Lamb, Nuruddin Farah and Ngugi wa Thiong’o, are small in word count, but rich in emotion and beauty.
