illustrated by Anu Chouhan & 9 more artists


50 immensely diverse biographies of South Asian women, with full colour illustrations, in a gorgeous hardback format- and threaded bookmark ribbon. The only error we can see is in the title: this book isn't 'just' for girls. This is for all child readers who will be excited to meet filmmakers, lawyers, mountaineers and protestors. A great proportion of UK icons, including Meera Syal, Sophia Duleep Singh, Nadiya Hussain, Noor Inayat Khan, Jameela Jamil and Reeta Loi (founder of Gaysians). Authored by the British South Asian woman who set up the Pink Ladoo Project (2015), one of the most prominent feminist movements for South Asian women globally @pinkladoo. Colourful timeline at the back plus biographies of the wonderful artists showcased here (includes three from the UK). We were so pleased to hear Puffin Books had picked this up from indie publisher, Kashi House (making it even easier for us to buy in). 'Adds to the young reader's knowledge base of the important and interesting contributions of South Asian women from a range of eras, fields, social class and achievements. I like that it gives a platform to South Asian illustrations and think it would be a great addition to a key stage 2 reference section' (Farrah, CLPE Learning Programme Leader, Letterbox Library reviewer). #SouthAsianSupergirls, Age 8-13, Hardback 130pp
