This unique book started life as a heartfelt gift from Eliza Sarlos to her son, Arthur. Eliza says, 'I just wanted Arthur to know about the incredible things these amazing women were doing. I didn't want him growing up in a lopsided world when it came to knowing who to respect and admire.'

Now extended substantially, Amazing Babes is an inspirational picture book for kids and adults featuring strong, powerful, and world-changing women from around the globe and across generations — you'll recognise some, and be delighted to meet the others.

This stunning full-colour book features 20 influential women such as Miles Franklin, the twentieth-century Australian writer and feminist; Emma Goldman, a pioneer of the American women's movement; Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma's pro-democracy leader; Gloria Steinem, one of the founders of modern feminism; andVandana Shiva, the Indian environmental activist, and includes a biography of each woman.

Read Caroline Baum's Review

At last! A terrific kids book featuring drawings and captions that celebrate the unique qualities of inspiring women to give little girls (and boys) examples of female role models of achievement and significance.

Included are Miles Franklin, Gloria Steinem, Emma Goldman, Frida Kahlo and many you may not have heard of but should know about. More please!

About the Author

Eliza Sarlos' words are accompanied by beautiful and playful paintings by the acclaimed illustrator, Grace Lee. Amazing Babes will delight children and parents alike.
