Once Upon A Time is a book about childhood. To raise money for the NSPCC over fifty celebrities from show business, religion and politics have written touching accounts of their own childhoods. Some of these are simply hilarious but a number are as touching as Dickens and pull at the heartstrings. Children are our future and they need to be protected, so in celebrating childhood this book is also celebrating the future.In all these accounts there is an understanding that children must be at the forefront of our attention and that they can give us a glimpse of hope in the modern world. The NSPCC fights on their behalf.There could be no better theme for a book designed to raise money for the NSPCC - to alleviate the suffering and deprivation of young people. Today, children are too often the victims of hardship and cruelty and this book will drive home the message with poignancy.Contributors include Tony Blair, David Jason, Chris Tarrant, June Whitfield, Sir Roger Moore and Meera Syal.
