Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review One children's books series trying to fight back... by telling the inspiring stories of women who overcame adversity and made history by pursuing their childhood dreams. * Toronto Star * Brilliantly accessible and inspiring * Rhino Reads * The kind of books that adults will covet and collect as well... The language and structure is simple enough for young readers, while a biographical timeline at the end of each book offers greater historical complexity * Irish Times *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
