Brilliantly accessible and inspiring Rhino Reads

'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
