Through the Looking Classes

There are over 300 million children in the world with short sight, many of whom are unable to enjoy the simple pleasure of reading a book.

Clearly's 'Glasses in Classes' campaign aims to get sight tests, affordable glasses and other treatments into every school in the world to give children the best start in life.

To promote this campaign, we have created this collection of stories, illustrations and memoirs for children from contributors including Quentin Blake, David Baddiel, Lauren Child, Cressida Cowell, Michael Morpurgo, Dermot O'Leary and many others from around the world.

You can read Through the Looking Glasses here (expand to full screen on mobile or tablet) or download a PDF or ePub version below.
