October 2019 Book of the Month

Here’s 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.  Kate Pankhurst is something of a fantastically great woman herself, and there’s lots for all readers to marvel at and enjoy in this book.

Fantastically Great Women Who Worked Wonders Gift Edition Press Reviews

So many worthy nonfiction books for this age group have good intentions but fail to step beyond simple preaching with boring line drawings. This one succeeds, thanks to its interesting choice of role models, gorgeous colourful illustrations, a sense of humour and sharp language that informs without patronising. - The Times

Their stories are told across bright spreads, which are packed with information that will make readers excited about the remarkable achievements described. - Absolutely Education

Every element of this book is pieced together perfectly; the amount of information, the fun way it is presented, the illustrations and of course the diverse mix of women.

An absolute must-have for every young person's bookshelf. - The Huffington Post

As a child, Kate spent most of her time drawing silly characters and thinking up funny things for them to do, she feels very lucky to now do this as her job. Kate is the bestselling author and illustrator of the phenomenal Fantastically Great Women Who Changed The World, nominated for the Kate Greenaway medal 2018, ...
