Product description

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

In a sign of the times - that rebellion is good - there's a book dominating the Christmas bestsellers list this year. It is Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo... what the title says to girls is that history has placed laurels on the heads of men, that children's books have left them out, and that this is their time for revolution ― Evening Standard

Forget passive simpering princesses and damsels in distress - the heroines of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls are famed for their real-life achievements ― Red

The all-female team behind a pioneering new book called Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls are confronting the tired, patriarchal narrative head-on. It sets out to challenge gender stereotypes and inspire young girls to aim high in their career goals ― Daily Mail

A must-have for the nightstand of every girl or young woman you know -- Geri Stengel ― Forbes

The feminist bedtime story book you'll wish you had growing up -- Harriet Hall ― Stylist

The exceptional women included here come from many times and places... Each is celebrated in a brief biography written in the style of a modern fairy tale - with the twist that she is often an unsung shaper of our society. Illustrations by female artists add to the joy of this ebullient, inspiring collection -- Julia Eccleshare ― Guardian

A worldwide hit -- Helena de Bertodano ― The Times

Really inspiring for all young girls, they should all read it -- Sarah ― The Late Late Toy Show, RTÉ

A cracking book... beautifully illustrated, a great source for young women to be inspired -- Ryan Tubridy ― The Late Late Toy Show, RTÉ

The feminist book every child needs in their bedroom... bedtime stories which tell of real women shattering the glass ceiling and challenging patriarchy should be read to all children - not just to little girls, but to little boys, too -- Ellie Wiseman ― Grazia

Go out now and add Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls to your bookshelf. Gripping and beautiful, Sofya has paused her Harry Potter obsession to tell me all about Aung San Suu Kyi and Anna Politkovskaya. Be still my feminist heart -- Rebecca Schiller ― The Pool

The key message is perseverance rather than success. Crucially, the book also gives exposure to female illustrators. Their diverse styles are universally attractive, with bright appealing colours and expressive faces. Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls would be a valuable addition to the bookshelves of any child interested in history, regardless of their gender -- Sara Keating ― Irish Times

You have to buy it for the little ones in your lives, but you also need a copy for your grown-up bookshelf... There is serious girl power between the covers of this book ― Bustle

From politics to sport to technology to entertainment, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls wonderfully celebrates the power of a woman's touch. It is a book that makes you proud to be a woman and allows little girls to dream big! ― Curious Mum

Potted biographies of lots of great women - not just rebels (although many of them are), but scientists, writers, artists, politicians. A great ethnic and historical mix too, and lots of women who did great things as children and teenagers -- Sally Nicholls

An excellent book... it should be top of every girl's reading list - and boys too, so they can see the vital role played by women throughout history. This crowdfunded book has become a smash hit, and quite rightly so ― Parents in Touch

Our favourite bedtime read ― Little London

If you're looking for something to help your daughter (or son) dream big tonight, there's one book up for the task... Uncovering the art of asking a lot of questions, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls is about the moments that make a life truly extraordinary - the trying, the failing, and most importantly, the trying again ― Mama Mia, Australia

It's a pretty safe bet to say that, if your child goes to school dressed as one of the Rebel Girl heroines for World Book Day, rather than as Hermoine Granger, Cinderella or Katniss Everdeen, say, she's absolutely on-trend for 2018 -- Joanna Moorhead ― Daily Telegraph

There's a book my younger daughter asks me to read to her every night. . . this book is different, because when I put it down and turn off her light, she sometimes says: "I want to be in it." It will come as no surprise that the book is Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo's Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, and has become a publishing sensation -- Paul Laity ― Guardian
