Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 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 * 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 *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)

Author's Bio

ISABEL SANCHEZ VERGARA, born in Barcelona, Spain, is a writer and creative director in constant search of new concepts for children's books. Working for more than fifteen years for clients in top advertising agencies, her books combine creativity with learning, aiming to establish a new and fresh relationship between children and pop culture. ELISA MUNSO is a Fine Arts graduate from the University of Barcelona. Whilst there, she specialised in sculpture, and also studied illustration, props and scenery. She currently works, mainly drawing and designing, in her own studio-gallery The Flood in Barcelona. The small gallery self-publishes their booklets of travel and stories. Elisa combines work in the gallery with her own projects, by organising exhibitions of illustration, and presentations of fanzines, by individuals and collectives.
