This series describes itself as the ‘true life stories of the most amazing people ever!’ and already has several volumes available, including Emmeline Pankhurst and Ada Lovelace.  

This life story of Malala is both very instructive on the political turmoil that led to her shooting, and in portraying Malala as a very engaging, brave and dedicated young person.  It is written in an easily readable text using side panels to explain situations and traditions without interrupting the flow of the biography.  It also contains a timeline taking us from 1947 – Pakistan’s independence – right through to 2018.  A very useful glossary explains unfamiliar words and a well detailed index all add enormously to the value of this biography.  

I particularly liked the explanation panel on the mechanics of writing this book (verso title page) – so that readers can know which are Malala’s actual words (in italic) and which are the authors interpretations – vital to students in this world of fake news. The line illustrations add a graphic novel feel to parts of the story – all making this a fascinating, well-written biography that will find a well-deserved place in many classrooms and libraries.
