Stories for Kids Who Dare to Be Different

Break free of normal! 100 remarkable folk show why it’s great to stand out. Boys will be boys and girls will be girls – or so the daft old saying goes. But what if you’re a girl and you like cage fighting? Or you’re a boy and you love ballet? And what if you dream of being a scientist, but you can’t spot any scientists who look or sound like you? This is a book about heroes who did it differently: people who broke the mould, dared to be true to themselves, and transformed the world. Björk, Dr Seuss, Whoopi Goldberg, Andy Warhol, Ellen MacArthur, Greta Gerwig, Andrea Bocelli, Hua Mulan. They did it. Dare you?

  • A joyful celebration of heroes who did it their way
  • People who defied barriers to fulfil their dreams
  • 100 true-life tales with dynamic colour artwork
