Palindromic Pledge

A Story for Children and Their Adults

Story by Bill Waddell  |  Illustrations by Beka Duke

About the Author

Bill is a lawyer who has made pro bono cases a priority in his practice for more than thirty years. “The original purpose of this story was twofold. I wrote this as a loving tribute to my wife, Patty, and my three daughters, Jessie, Grace and Anna. My second purpose was to provide a resource for children and their adults, whether that be parents, grandparents, or teachers, to begin exploring why ‘justice for all’ is an important cultural value for everyone.”
