Little People, Big Dreams- Mary Shelley

SKU: B046308

‘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. 

As a child, Mary Shelley loved to read. One night, at a party, Mary was challenged to write a horror story. This got her thinking... and dreaming about a scientist who created a monster. She wrote this down and eventually finished the novel we know today as Frankenstein. Mary understood that most people like to be scared, revolutionising the way readers experience fiction. This inspiring story of the writer’s life features a facts and photos section at the back.'

Illustrated by Yelena Bryksenkova. 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-

“One children’s books series trying to fight back… by telling the inspiring stories of women who overcame adversity and made history by pursuing their childhood dreams.” 
Toronto Star


“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


Best children’s books for spring - “Strikingly illustrated, they’re superb first biographies for younger readers.”
