'We love the Little People, Big Dreams series of books' * The Glitter Guide * "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 * "Brilliantly accessible and inspiring" * Rhino Reads * "A QUIRKY kids biography series" * The Voice * Best children's books for spring - "Strikingly illustrated, they're superb first biographies for younger readers." * The Huffington Post * "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 *
