'Absolutely beautiful. Get one for yourself and one to inspire a woman in your life' Stylist; 'Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls is a revolution at bedtime. Esther Walker thought she had parenting down until she read the hit book to her daughter. It has changed their lives' The Sunday Times; 'Beautiful production makes this a book to keep, treasure and read again, and the end pages are a call to arms: space for readers to write their own story and draw their own portrait. Essential reading for girls and indeed boys; children who read this at bedtime are guaranteed some big and inspirational dreams' The Guardian; 'This amazing book shows girls they can be anything they want' Melinda Gates; 'The best bedtime book you will ever read.' Caroline Siegrist, Cool Mom Picks; 'I bought this book for my 7 year old daughter. She is obsessed. She sleeps with it. She takes it to the car. She takes it to school, where her and her friends pretend they are the women from the book. We read it together at night and the girls read it at school. Thank you!' Natasha Wright
