Review

This amazing book shows young girls they can be anything they want -- Melinda Gates Trust me, your life needs Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls... Absolutely beautiful - get one for yourself and one to inspire a woman in your life -- Sarah Shaffi * Stylist * Featuring spies, pirates, astronauts, activists, scientists, writers, sports stars and more, many of the stories are so thrilling and uplifting your child's heart may beat a little faster, her mind racing with possibilities. If she leaps out of bed to get to work, blame the authors -- Emine Saner * Guardian * For generations, bedtime stories have been deployed by frazzled parents at the end of a long day to persuade children to drift off to sleep. Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls is a fairytale book much more likely to do the opposite - yet mums and dads are still rushing to buy it... Modern and fundamentally feminist, this riot grrrl reinvention of the fairytale is so inspiring adults are also reading it in droves -- Heather Saul * i newspaper * Elegant, colourful... and captivatingly told... In an ideal world, not only would mothers read this aloud to daughters, but teachers would read it to schoolboys -- Nicolette Jones * Sunday Times * A book to keep, treasure and read again, and the end pages are a call to arms: space for readers to write their own story and drawn their own portrait. Essential reading for girls and indeed boys; children who read this at bedtime are guaranteed some big and inspirational dreams -- Fiona Noble * Observer * You have to buy it for the little ones in your lives, but you also need a copy for your grown-up bookshelf... There is serious girl power between the covers of this book * Bustle * A must-have for the nightstand of every girl or young woman you know -- Geri Stengel * Forbes * Forget passive simpering princesses and damsels in distress - the heroines of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls are famed for their real-life achievements * Red * The all-female team behind a pioneering new book called Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls are confronting the tired, patriarchal narrative head-on. It sets out to challenge gender stereotypes and inspire young girls to aim high in their career goals... The book was launched via a stratospheric Kickstarter campaign that drew worldwide attention * Daily Mail * The feminist bedtime story book you'll wish you had growing up -- Harriet Hall * Stylist * The exceptional women included here come from many times and places... Each is celebrated in a brief biography written in the style of a modern fairy tale - with the twist that she is often an unsung shaper of our society. Illustrations by female artists add to the joy of this ebullient, inspiring collection -- Julia Eccleshare * Guardian * A worldwide hit -- Helena de Bertodano * The Times * The feminist book every child needs in their bedroom... bedtime stories which tell of real women shattering the glass ceiling and challenging patriarchy should be read to all children - not just to little girls, but to little boys, too -- Ellie Wiseman * Grazia * From politics to sport to technology to entertainment, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls wonderfully celebrates the power of a woman's touch. It is a book that makes you proud to be a woman and allows little girls to dream big! * Curious Mum * The key message is perseverance rather than success. Crucially, the book also gives exposure to female illustrators. Their diverse styles are universally attractive, with bright appealing colours and expressive faces. Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls would be a valuable addition to the bookshelves of any child interested in history, regardless of their gender -- Sara Keating * Irish Times * An excellent book... it should be top of every girl's reading list - and boys too, so they can see the vital role played by women throughout history. This crowdfunded book has become a smash hit, and quite rightly so * Parents in Touch *
