Product Description

In this new series, discover the lives of outstanding people from designers and artists to scientists. All of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream. The first book follows Coco Chanel, from her early life in an orphanage - where she is a genius with needle and thread - to her time as a cabaret singer, hat maker and, eventually, international fashion designer.

This inspiring and informative little biography comes with extra facts about Coco's life at the back.

          Comments about Coco Chanel:

          We bought this book for our 11 year old granddaughter as it was in the teenage section and she is interested in fashion design. However, it turned out to be a book with illustrations and words more suited to a younger child being read to by adult.

          "One children's books series trying to fight back... by telling the inspiring stories of women who overcame adversity and made history by pursuing their childhood dreams." * Toronto Star * "Brilliantly accessible and inspiring" * Rhino Reads * "The kind of books that adults will covet and collect as well... The language and structure is simple enough for young readers, while a biographical timeline at the end of each book offers greater historical complexity" * Irish Times *
