Celebrating the actions and achievements of 25 of the world's greatest figures
Focusing on rebel heroes who overcame seemingly impossible circumstances and stood up for what they believed in and also those who spoke out against injustices, this book is packed with informative profiles and incredible artwork of the likes of Nelson Mandela, Maya Angelou and J.K. Rowling.
As well as world leaders and contemporary favourites, this book focuses on unsung heroes including Irena Sendler (who rescued 2,500 children in World War II) and Juliane Koepcke (who survived an airplane crash in a rainforest aged just 17).
Each profile is also accompanied by a 'What Can You Do?' section which asks the reader to think about their actions if they encountered similar obstacles to these inspiring figures.
