Review quote

"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 * '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 * '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 * "Strikingly illustrated, they're superb first biographies for younger readers." * The Huffington Post * "A QUIRKY kids biography series" * The Voice * "Brilliantly accessible and inspiring" * Rhino Reads * 'Empowering books EVERY child should read... Yes they are all women but these stories have captured both boys and girls... A must for every child's bookshelf.' * Junior Magazine * 'If I had to pick a favourite series of children's picture books, Little People, Big Dreams would definitely be up there... Educational, inspiring and empowering for young girls, we plan to collect the entire set.' * Bambino Goodies * "One children's books series trying to fight back... by telling the inspiring stories of women who overcame adversity and made history by pursuing their childhood dreams." * Toronto Star * 'Sumptuously illustrated hardbacks, they take the life stories of famous women in history and retell them in a child-friendly way' * Daily Mail *
