            Kate Pankhurst, descendent of Emmeline Pankhurst, is back with another 'smart, informative, inclusive and accessible' book about women who have trail-blazed a cause.* In this case, it's the mission to respect and protect the environment. From deep in the ocean, around the Antarct...ic to the heart of a Tanzanian forest, women throughout history have made discoveries that have shown us just how amazing the Earth is and why we should look after it. Read about how Antarctic researcher Edith Farkas helped identify the hole in the Ozone Layer and made the whole world realise the effect of pollution and how Daphne Sheldrick's love for wildlife inspired her to care for young elephants who had been orphaned in the wild. In the Gambia, Isatou Ceesay is spreading the message about the damaging consequences of plastic waste and educates women in local communities about recycling. In the UK, Anita Roddick led the charge for ethical consumerism when she opened her cosmetics store, The Body Shop in 1976. From the brilliant author of Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World, which has sold over 200,000 copies. Written in Kate's engaging and playful style with brilliant facts, Fantastically Great Women Who Saved the Planet is a fantastic introduction to just a few of the women whose work and activisim has shaped the world we live in. *Fiona Noble, The Bookseller, 17th November 2017.
