Recommended non-fiction title for KS2 and KS3 readers aged 7 – 14 packed with information about the chosen 50 women of science, many previously unknown to me.
The book has a straightforward format. A biographical-dictionary style entry on the right, with marginal illustrations giving additional information, alongside a a full-page illustration on the left. Both text and illustrations are the work of Rachel Ignotovsky.
The book is designed, I suppose understandably, to appeal to girls, with a profusion of pastel shades on black backgrounds and a fancy font used for page titles.
