MEDIA REVIEWS

So many worthy nonfiction books for this age group have good intentions but fail to step beyond simple preaching with boring line drawings. This one succeeds, thanks to its interesting choice of role models, gorgeous colourful illustrations, a sense of humour and sharp language that informs without patronising. - The Times

It’s impossible not to be inspired by this book, written by a descendent of Emmeline Pankhurst, and the great women featured in it. Their stories are told across bright spreads, which are packed with information that will make readers excited about the remarkable achievements described. - Absolutely Education

Every element of this book is pieced together perfectly; the amount of information, the fun way it is presented, the illustrations and of course the diverse mix of women. This book should be available in every school and every library and is sure to inspire young people to follow their hearts. - Acorn Books

An absolute must-have for every young person’s bookshelf. - The Huffington Post

This book which is a must have for anybody – girl or boy, man or woman – it’s enlightening for one and all … it’s celebratory; laying out key messages in an attractive and engaging way to inspire a new set of admirers. - Books for Keeps
