Picture book review: ‘Fantastically great women who changed the world’ by Kate Pankhurst

‘Fantastically great women who changed the world’ by Kate Pankhurst, is a marvellous look at how women throughout history, have made a significant impact on how we live our lives today.

We are treated to an overflow of double page spreads, with super interesting facts, beautiful illustrations-featuring lots of hooked noses and flushed cheeks- and at times a whizzy helping of swirly arrows; which welcome the reader to follow the journeys of these brilliant people, not only in the mind, but with the eyes too.

Frida Kahlo, Rosa Parks, Sagagawea, and Jane Austen are just some of the amazing women just waiting to tell their story… 

This is a book that lends great hope and enthusiasm for generations to come, for both girls and boys who have ideas, and talents they wish to pursue-especially in the face of hardship- and that for me is the most magical thing to champion, in every kind of way.  

What can I say, it’s a great book with perfectly pitched detail, and of course ‘Fantastically great women who changed the world’ all hail!

Can’t wait to share my interview with the author herself, and tell you how she is a descendant of Miss Emmeline Pankhurst herself!
