For the first time, the inspiring life stories of amazing Middle Eastern women are collected together here. Travelling through the ages, we learn about the legendary storyteller Scheherazade; Zenobia, Queen of Palmyra and other courageous women, moving to the trailblazing women of our times, including architect Zaha Hadid, Amal Clooney and Nobel Prize winner Nadia Murad. Strength of purpose and high achievement connects them all, no matter their background or different paths. A map and glossary enables the reader to better understand the region and particular words and ideas. Wafa Tarnowska is author of the award winning Arabian Nights (Barefoot Books), as well as a translator and subtitler. The book is fully illustrated by five wonderful children’s illustrators.
