‘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.

Little Dolly grew up singing near the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. She was poor in money but rich in love and talent. After school, she moved to Nashville to pursue her singer-songwriting dreams. Dolly became a musical superstar, but she never forgot where she came from. She now uses her wealth to give back to people in need. This inspiring story of the country legend’s life features a facts and photos section at the back.'

Illustrated by Daria Solak. Hardback edition.

Created initially for her twin nieces, Alba and Claudia, to address the gender gap in children’s inspirational literature, 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, Muhammad Ali and many more...  Our rating? 10/10! Radish LOVES Little People, Big Dreams. Here’s what some other people think-
