Good Night Stories for Rebel GirlsGood Night Stories for Rebel Girls by Elena Favilli
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ever since, we got this in at the store, it’s been selling consistently well. It’s one hundred biographies told as one-page fairy tales illustrated by sixty female illustrators from around the world.

I only just read it and I was amazed by how good it was. (There were a few stories that could have been rewritten to showcase more what they did.) I ended up looking up more info about certain women- and certain subjects- in the book. This will truly inspire lots of readers. And, no doubt, this will become a starting point for many people to find out more and perhaps write more books about these girls and women.

Towards the back of the book, there are a couple of pages where readers can write their own story and draw their own portrait!

    It’s fascinating to me to hear what sells well. Maybe the combination of girl power and short, short stories?

    It’s a new one to me, Earl. It surely would be fun to read some of the stories!
