Yes they are all women but these stories have captured both boys and girls... A must for every child's bookshelf.' * Junior Magazine * "Brilliantly accessible and inspiring" * Rhino Reads * "A QUIRKY kids biography series" * The Voice * "Strikingly illustrated, they're superb first biographies for younger readers." * The Huffington Post * 'These books are designed with admirable simplicity... the difficult, often traumatic detail of an entire life is distilled with tremendous skill into its essence; the result is age-appropriate for yet unpatronising to five-year-olds, and hums with a sense of transgressive inspiration' * Times Literary Supplement * 'A gorgeously designed series of books about achieving great things after dreaming big as a child. This simply told tale of the suffragettes opens up a world of whys about how the world used to be... Packed with great, easy-to-read facts at the back for avid minds' * Smallish * "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 *
