The Guardian on Fantastically Great Women Scientists and Their Stories

«Fantastically Great Women Who Worked Wonders is the third in Kate Pankhurst’s colourful picture-book celebrations of notable females; with their playful use of speech bubbles and perspective shifts, they remain significantly more engaging and inspiring than the rival Rebel Girls

, The Guardian

«It's a tremendously engaging read: smart, informative, inclusive and accessible, with gorgeous, visually creative art. The tone is really joyful and it's hard to imagine any group of primary-aged children who wouldn't be inspired by these stories.»

, The Bookseller

«So many worthy nonfiction books for this age group have good intentions but fail to step beyond simple preaching with boring line drawings. This one succeeds, thanks to its interesting choice of role models, gorgeous colourful illustrations, a sense of humour and sharp language that informs without patronising»

«This book which is a must have for anybody – girl or boy, man or woman – it’s enlightening for one and all … it’s celebratory; laying out key messages in an attractive and engaging way to inspire a new set of admirers»
