Girls are Best

by Sandi Toksvig - £6.99  Random House Children (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781862304291 | ISBN 10: 1862304297

For as long as history has been recorded, girls haven't had much of a look in amongst all the great men we remember. But that doesn't mean they weren't there. And it doesn't mean that they didn't achieve great things, come up with wonderful inventions or win battles! Lots of people have heard of Joan of Arc, Boadicea and Florence Nightingale, but...
 
Did you know that there were actually female Gladiators - Gladiatrices?
Or that Nimkasi was the Sumerian Goddess of Beer?
Or that it was Mary Jacob Phelps who invented the bra?
 
In this book, Sandi Toksvig shows that His-tory is actually Her-story. Though they're often ignored or overlooked, they have changed the world.
There's no question about it...Girls are best!
