Fantastically Great Women Who Changed The World

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Sacagawea, Frida Kahlo, Mary Seacole and Rosa Parks didn't set out to be thought of as 'great' but, instead, followed their passions and did what they thought was right to make the world a better place.

Written and illustrated by a direct descendant of suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst, this colourful picture book is full of facts about 13 inspirational women from history. It showcases some of their great achievements in a fun and accessible way for younger readers.

A double-page spread for every woman features an overview of her main achievement with additional 'Did you know?' facts alongside irreverent illustrations of the women, acting as a great starting point for further research.
