Eight years ago when my daughter was born, I couldn’t wait to read to her. But I was hard pressed to find any books that featured smart, adventurous female protagonists. The only books with girls in them were overwhelmingly stories about fairies, and princesses. I wanted my daughter and all girls to know, that they are strong, intelligent funny, brave and adventurous too.
This lack I saw in the market is what motivated me to write the So She Did series. Non fiction stories about incredible Australian women who changed history or herstory.
These astounding women’s stories will inspire any child, both girls and boys
