‘Great Women Who Worked Wonders’ by Kate Pankhurst

This is another inspiring, information-packed picture book in what’s becoming something of a series (see also Great Women Who Made History and Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World).

It tells the stories of pioneering women who achieved amazing things, often in the face of prejudice or downright hostility from society.  There are familiar names – Rosalind Franklin is included – plus lots that are lesser known, but just as fascinating: balloonist Sophie Blanchard for example, and Sarah Breedlove, beauty entrepreneur.  Their stories are told through lively, engaging text and pictures – it’s a treat to read.

Published on 7/2/19 and for readers aged 5+.
