Reviews from Around the World Following on from Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World, this book introduces young readers to more fantastic women role models. A wonderfully original and diverse collection of women, including some names children may have come across through Horrible Histories etc, like Boudicca and Harriet Tubman, as well as fascinating women who they are less likely to have come across before, like Egyptian pharaoh Hatshepsut and pirate queen Sayyida al-Hurra. With the fun and accessible approach that make the first book such a success, this is full of information and inspiration. The level of detail makes this book perfect for key stage 2 as well as younger readers. We love it!—Carmen, Amazon
This is exactly what I imagine my future little girls reading. The illustrations are more than amazing and they add so much to the actual stories of the fantastically great women mentioned. Each of them unique and quirky in her own way!
