Fantastically Great Women Who Made History

Fantastically Great Women Who Made History

Paperback £6.99

A wonderful book celebrating some of history’s most exceptional women. There are familiar names, such as Ada Lovelace, Boudica, Pocahontas and Mary Wollstonecraft, but many of who have seldom been mentioned in history books for children: Second World War secret agent Noor Inayat Khan, Chinese revolutionary writer Qiu Jin and Underground Railroad conductor Harriet Tubman.

Lively spreads showcase each woman, using cartoon-style illustrations and a well-pitched level of facts and social context. It’s a tremendously engaging read: smart, informative, inclusive and accessible, with gorgeous, visually creative art.
