"Inspiring book for girls"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Has been enthusiastically received and both myself and Miss 8 are enjoying going through it and learning about worldwide, real life superwomen. Beautiful illustration. Stories sometimes a bit light on details but easy enough to find out more with google.

"Loved by my own Rebel Girls"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A wonderful introduction to some historical and contemporary female role models. This is a beautifully illustrated book and with a page for each heroine, the book is informative and easy to read.

"Wonderful read that introduces so many amazing women"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

We've really loved reading this book, sparks a few too many questions for a bedtime read so we've tended to read it during the day. This has made a lovely addition to our bookshelf and will be on our gift list for the coming years.

"Amazing book!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is such an inspiring and refreshing read compared with traditional fairy tales. I love reading this to my daughter (and would happily read it to boys too, this is perhaps my only issue is that it says it's “for girls” but I understand why they've done this). They are a nice easy read, with one page per person, in the fairy-tale format but with real women, historic and modern who have excelled, against odds to succeed in their field. I look forward to buying volume 2.

"Disappointing Propaganda"
1 stars"

There are some great stories and accounts in here. And then there is some obvious propaganda. Hopefully I can say that the target audience for this book is not those who would call themselves conservative, and still have this review published. I did not purchase this on mighty ape, but read most of it at the library when my daughter intended to borrow it (the stories are fairly short with large well drawn pictures/paintings of the subject).

"No age warning"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I bought this for my 8 year old grand daughter. She is a very proficient reader but the story about a transgendered teen was not deemed to be age appropriate (by her parents). Sadly, this will have to adorn my bookshelves for a few years. It is sad that the inclusion of this story renders an otherwise great book totally unsuitable.

Vibrantly illustrated and truly inspirational, Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls tells the stories of 100 heroic women from Elizabeth I to Serena Williams What if the princess didn't marry Prince Charming but instead went on to be an astronaut? What if the jealous step sisters were supportive and kind? And what if the queen was the one really in charge of the kingdom? Illustrated by sixty female artists from every corner of the globe, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls introduces us to one hundred remarkable women and their extraordinary lives, from Ada Lovelace to Malala, Amelia Earhart to Michelle Obama. Empowering, moving and inspirational, these are true fairy tales for heroines who definitely don't need rescuing.
