Elena Fav­illi & Francesca Cavallo in­spire in Good Night Sto­ries For Rebel Girls

The Simple Things - - MARCH THINGS -

This sparky, beau­ti­fully il­lus­trated book (it fea­tures the work of 60 women artists) is the ideal present for all as­pir­ing heroines. It tells the sto­ries of 100 re­mark­able women – from sci­en­tists to artists, politi­cians to pi­rates – each in the style of a bed­time fairy tale. Ev­ery en­try de­scribes the women’s achieve­ments in sim­ple sentences that are a won­der­ful in­tro­duc­tion to fa­mous fig­ures and less well-known pioneers. Draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion from across the planet, and from the past and present, Fav­illi and Cavallo cel­e­brate the lives of lu­mi­nar­ies such as math­e­ma­ti­cian and com­puter pro­gram­mer Ada Lovelace, painter Frida Kahlo and avi­a­tor Amy Earhart, all of whom are role mod­els for rebel girls ev­ery­where.
