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.

Review:

A revolution at bedtime... Esther Walker thought she had parenting down until she read the hit book to her daughter. It has changed their lives (Sunday Times Magazine)

The publishing sensation of the year (Evening Standard, Books of the Year)

The definitive book of the year in our house, for both parents and offspring. It offers celebratory, non-judgmental paeans to the varied lives of influential women. Anyone needing an antidote for certain oversexualised, underoccupied screen heroines need look no further (Maggie O’Farrell Guardian Books of the Year)

A welcome reminder to girls that nothing stands in their way - except a lack of self-belief. This book started as a crowd-funded project and has become a best-seller which is the best news of the year (Sally Morris Daily Mail Books of the Year)

This amazing book shows young girls they can be anything they want (Melinda Gates)

Trust me, your life needs Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls... Absolutely beautiful - get one for yourself and one to inspire a woman in your life (Sarah Shaffi Stylist)

Featuring spies, pirates, astronauts, activists, scientists, writers, sports stars and more, many of the stories are so thrilling and uplifting your child's heart may beat a little faster, her mind racing with possibilities. If she leaps out of bed to get to work, blame the authors (Emine Saner Guardian)

Modern and fundamentally feminist, this riot grrrl reinvention of the fairytale is so inspiring adults are also reading it in droves (Heather Saul i newspaper)

Elegant, colourful... and captivatingly told... In an ideal world, not only would mothers read this aloud to daughters, but teachers would read it to schoolboys (Nicolette Jones Sunday Times)

A book to keep, treasure and read again, and the end pages are a call to arms: space for readers to write their own story and drawn their own portrait. Essential reading for girls and indeed boys; children who read this at bedtime are guaranteed some big and inspirational dreams (Fiona Noble Observer)
