Wonder Ponder launches 'I, Person', the second title in its Visual Philosophy for Children series

Ellen Duthie

It's here!
I, Person, the second title in Wonder Ponder's Visual Philosophy for Children series arrived from the printers just yesterday. After Cruelty Bites, the book-in-a-box that prompted readers to think about cruelty in a seriously fun way, comes I, Person
, the book-in-a-box that invites readers to think about who they are and what they are.  How do you know that you are not really a robot? Would you have been a different person if you had been born the opposite sex? Could a robot be a better footballer than a human? What would an alien have to have, or what would they have to be like, for us to consider them a person or at least deserving of the same rights as a person? What do you think? 

I, PERSON


Text and concept: Ellen Duthie
Illustrations: Daniela Martagón

Who are you? and What are you? 

Are you absolutely certain you are a person?
How do you know you are not really a robot?
If you had more than one brain, would you be more than one person?

What do you think? 

The second title by the Cruelty Bites author and illustrator team. 

For ages 8+ to adults

 

 

I, PERSON is the second title in the Wonder Ponder Visual Philosophy for Children series.

It is a cross between a book and a game that comes in a box and invites readers to play and think about two Big Questions: Who am I? and What am I?

The questions prompted by the scenes in the box allow the reader/player to go building their own definition of ‘person’ and go establishing the implications of being a person in terms of rights and responsibilities, intelligence and emotions and knowledge and learning.

Like all titles in the Wonder Ponder Visual Philosophy Children series, I, Person is designed for children to look at, read and think about by themselves or with others, in company, in educational, play or family settings.
