Thanks to a viral experiment, you may have recently learnt the Ugly Truth of Children’s Books. Faced with a full bookshelf, one mum and her daughter found that there were barely any female characters featured and if girls were lucky enough to be included in the books, they didn’t speak, or simply spent their time waiting for a prince.

But what if the princess didn’t need rescuing by a prince? What if she wants to explore the world and travel to the moon? What if she got on with her fellow female characters and they helped each other in achieving their dreams? Enter Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls (thank God!)

An exciting encyclopedia full of stories of 100 heroic women, each page is a new breath of fresh inspiration. From Elizabeth I to Amelia Earhart to Malala, read the true fairytales about women who have shaped our past, present and future. Illustrated by sixty female artists from all over the globe, the visuals are stunning and also showcase the collaborative nature of the project.

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!
