"In Claude and Medea we are introduced to two incredible characters whose very different lives are intertwined by their shared willingness to open their hearts and minds and see past prejudice. This charming story reminds us of the passion that welled inside of all of us when we learned of the injustices that take place in the world. Weil's engaging book helps us appreciate the creativity of children and the desire that we all have to make a positive difference in the world—no matter our age. I look forward to reading more about the adventures of Claude and Medea." —lauren Ornelas, Founder, Viva! USA
