    A must for any girl!

    Posted by V. on 22nd Nov 2017

    This is one of the best books I bought for my little girl. 100 inspiring 1-page stories about women that didn't need to wear pretty dresses or wait to be rescued by a prince, but accomplished meaningful things. The book itself is gorgeous with a nice finish cover, nice quality paper and fabulous illustrations. I highly recommend it.

    Inspirational

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Jun 2017

    My 12 year old Granddaughter had fallen out of love with reading and I took on the mission to find books to stimulate a reading habit. This book was reviewed in the Times and I thought it would be good for her. Good isn't the word for it as she has not put the book down since I gave it to her. The stories are well written, and are inspirational. Why haven't we heard of these women before?

    Great and interesting read

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Jun 2017

    lovely edition and great illustrations for every woman featuring. A long and interesting list of rebel girls indeed. Short and to the point- one could sueeze in two or three stories before the light goes out!

    Reluctant reader is transformed!

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Apr 2017

    This book is the first thing my 10 year old has EVER asked to read more of. The illustrations are beautiful, the stories inspirational and pitched perfectly for children. They are not patronising nor too complicated. It's perfect!

    Fabulous Book

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Apr 2017

    Not your normal book, but can't rave about it enough! Have now bought for several friends too. Has resulted in a lot of really good conversations with my daughter that ordinarily just wouldn't have happened. A few of the stories are potentially a bit strange/weak but a welcome change from princesses!

    A winner for mother and daughter.

    Girl power!

    Posted by Madison Hartwright on 25th Apr 2017

    I bought this for my partners daughter, she has been mainly homeschooled/unschooled but this year has entered full-time education. It was a hard decision to make and in keeping with our values I bought this book to remind her to always be herself and that she can achieve anything, it does just that. It gives us the opportunity to talk about subjects not taught to girls in school. She loves it as much as we do.

    Read it yourself first

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Apr 2017

    It's a really interesting book, very different. I don't think its perfect, but anyone's selection of rebel girls will be subjective. It does bring up some pretty big issues and has provoked some conversations with my 6 year old that I wasn't quite prepared for. The thing about stories is that they let you explore deep and often quite dark themes in a safe way. This basic premis is altered when the stories are real, then the fact that we are reading (at bedtime) about how Amelia Erheart's body has never been found is actually quite spooky and unsettling, the same for why Russians are trying to kill journalists .... to be honest we started off with reading a story a night but I've changed our rhythm and removed the book for now. We'll come back to it when she's a bit older.
