About the Author

Georgia Amson-Bradshaw is a children's writer and editor who has worked on a number of award-winning science book for kids. She won the Royal Society Young People's Book Prize for Eye Benders and the London Science Museum Activity Book award for This Book Thinks You're a Scientist. She remembers how eye-opening and inspiring her favorite books were when she was a child and so she strives to have the same effect on the children who read her books.
Rita Petruccioli is an illustrator and comic book artist with projects in advertising, magazines, textile design, and children's books.

"This installment in the Brilliant Women series (4 titles) opens with a startling statistic--"only between three and five percent of the artworks on display in the most famous galleries across Europe and the USA are by women artists"--and the colorful, brief biographies of artists and designers that follow demonstrate what an oversight that is. The women featured vary in background, medium, and era, and together they show a rich picture of the history of women in the arts. The impressive scope, which includes folk artists, architects, and fashion designers among the usual suspects, will go a long way toward introducing a diverse array of women in the arts to young readers."
"For children ages 9+ comes this new series from B.E.S. which focuses on showcasing women that have achieved something extraordinary. The Brilliant Women Book Series is one to read to both boys and girls as everyone can enjoy the illustrated, interesting stories. I have 3 girls and I want them all to reach for the stars and be or do anything they want to do. These books contain inspiring information on women that I want my girls to learn more about. From famous scientists to less famous artists each and every woman featured has done something amazing. The books do a great job of highlighting the important yet interesting parts of their lives. At the end of each book is a section that highlights what your child can do today to help develop the knowledge or skills needed to help them learn more. Learning to code, going to museums or entering local art competitions are just a few of the many examples they give. These are an incredible set that we will be keeping on the bookshelf for casual reading and for reference."
