Product description

Review

"The book to buy for daughters . . . It would make a fine stocking filler with its lively, entertaining, illustrated snippets about the great women in history and the restrictions that they overcame, and will arm readers for arguments about gender equality" (Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times)

"A little ego-boost for the girls . . . a reminder, from the Bayeux Tapestry to gladiatrices, no less, of women's achievements, told in Sandi's trademark zany, accessible style" (Irish Independent)

"There's a mass of facts and information of all kinds . . . The result is a book which will make girls realise that anything is possible - and that women have already done most of everything already!" (Julia Eccleshare Love Reading)

"My grandchildren will be getting this in their stockings . . . It's funny and full of facts that may surprise parents too. In a world of hollow celebrity it is a timely polemic that warms my feminist heart" (Sheila Hancock The Times)

"Would make fascinating reading for men too . . . Girls are Best is packed with fascinating facts with which to wow friends. It is an education and a revelation, a great book to dip in and out of and to learn from" (Write Away!) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

Written in Sandi's hilarious voice, this interesting, funny book is jam-packed with facts, tales and information on a range of topics that prove girls can do anything boys can do - and do it better!
