Shortlisted Little Rebels Award 2015
Pearl has had to move house because her mum has been promoted to 'The Boss'. Her new big school works out fine until she encounters Sebastian, a little boy who is keen to suggest that Pearl goes about everything 'like a girl'. A book about a brave little girl who challenges sexist stereotyping head on. Super-funky artwork. Little Rebels Judge, Kim Reynolds, said: 'The illustrations in this picture book are terrific. Their clarity and power complement a story about a successful lone mother and her brave and determined daughter Pearl as mum starts a new job and Pearl joins a new school. This story has a strong feminist message that shows girls can be strong, creative - and kind'. Ages 4-7, Paperback 34pp
