£9.99
SKU: B035560

‘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.

Jane Austen was born into a large family with seven brothers and sisters. She grew up reading and writing stories in the English countryside. As an adult, she wrote with commentaries about the landed gentry in a way that no-one had ever done before. These novels made Jane one of the most loved British writers of all time. This inspiring story of her life features a facts and photos section at the back.'

Illustrated by Katie Wilson. 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-

“Brilliantly accessible and inspiring” 

Rhino Reads

“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”

Irish Times
