‘Discover the lives of outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream. 

Billie Jean King grew up surrounded by sport of all kinds. But the first time she played tennis, she knew she would become World No. 1. On and off the court, she strived for equality, blazing a trail for women in sport and showing the world hat women’s tennis deserved to be taken seriously. Billie Jean continues to teach young players the value of teamwork and the importance of equality in sport. This inspiring story of the tennis legend’s life features a fact and photo section at the back.'

Created initially for her twin nieces Alba and Claudia to address the gender gap in children’s inspirational literature, Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara ‘wanted to show Alba and Claudia some real female characters who have the determination to believe in their dreams and make these dreams a reality.’. An internationally bestselling series loved by all (but especially by Radish) which has now grown to include male figures to continue its ‘celebration of uniqueness’, telling the tales of people such as Stephen Hawking, Muhammed Ali and many more...  Our rating? 10/10! Radish LOVES Little People, Big Dreams. Here’s what some other people think-

“The kind of books that adults will covet and collect as well… The language and structure is simple enough for young readers, while a biographical timeline at the end of each book offers greater historical complexity”
