About this title


The Trouble with the Alphabet, Through the Eyes of Innocence is an artistic and literary journey into the heart of human rights violations and suffering of children around the world. With one country represented by each letter of the alphabet, the book addresses the many heart wrenching issues plaguing the world's children: genocide, child labor, human trafficking, the use of child soldiers, poverty, AIDS and the devastating effects of corrupt governments to name a few. It invites the reader to consider these issues through vibrant portraits that illustrate the emotions and vulnerability of each child. It challenges indifference and apathy through poetic messages, delivered as if through a child's eyes, messages that cut through the rhetoric and pierce the heart and soul. It clarifies the issues through short essays that aim to enlighten even the "informed." Finally, it involves experts: organizations that provide answers, strategies and a platform for every reader to become a giver, a doer and an activist. The foreword written by Jack Healey, former Executive Director of Amnesty International USA and renowned human rights activist, states "in this book, children, always the first to be hurt and harmed in any conflict, receive the full attention their innocence deserves. Talent, paint and prose become compelling instruments that Caryn uses in an unforgettable manner. The combination of the three lifts the veil of detachment and allows us to enter the room where a new day may dawn and convictions are born; convictions that energize and foment new action for decency and justice." The Trouble with the Alphabet is a 12"x12"- coffee table book printed in the USA in High Definition Hexachrome. It has been manufactured using wind energy, 25% post consumer recycled FSC forest managed paper and vegetable based inks. In addition to being "green" it aims to raise awareness to these important issues and support the organizations involved.
