MEDIA REVIEWS

Fantastically Great Women Who Worked Wonders is the third in Kate Pankhurst’s colourful picture-book celebrations of notable females; with their playful use of speech bubbles and perspective shifts, they remain significantly more engaging and inspiring than the rival Rebel Girls. - Imogen Russell Williams on Fantastically Great Women Who Worked Wonders, The Guardian
