'A picture book for kids and adults celebrating strong, powerful, and world-changing women from across the globe and generations.
'This unique book started life as a heartfelt gift from author Eliza Sarlos to her son Arthur. Now extended substantially, Amazing Babes introduces all of us to an
eclectic and refreshing mix of 20 women role-models from around the world.
'This beautifully presented book, which will inspire children and parents alike, features influential women such as Miles Franklin, the 20th-century Australian writer and feminist; Emma Goldman, a pioneer of the American women’s movement; Kathleen Hanna, the lead singer from 1990s seminal punk-rock acts Bikini Kill and Le Tigre; Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma’s pro-democracy leader; Gloria Steinem, one of the founders of modern feminism; and Vandana Shiva, the Indian environmental activist.
'Eliza Sarlos’ words are accompanied by beautiful and playful paintings from acclaimed illustrator Grace Lee.' (Publisher's blurb)
