This October we’re absolutely delighted to be publishing Great Britons: 50 Amazing People Who Have Called Britain Home – an inspiring book of stories about 50 key figures in Great Britain’s history, who have impacted the way we live, think and feel today.
And today we’re sharing an early preview of this fantastic new non-fiction book – you can take a look inside the book below!
Throughout the centuries, the history of this small island nation has been shaped by the people who were born in Britain or arrived on its shores. From early Britons to modern pioneers, leaders, writers, athletes and activists, this country has contained a wealth of incredible talent, only made ‘greater’ by our history of immigration, integration and innovation.
Discover the enthralling and diverse stories of 50 brilliant Britons through the ages, from the warrior queen Boudicca of early Britain, who rose in revolt against the Romans, to activist Malala Yousafzai, who fights for every girl’s right to an education today. The gripping tales include key figures from all areas of British life – science, medicine, entertainment, sports, activism and more.
Featuring the inspirational lives and achievements of amazing people such as Florence Nightingale, Alan Turing, Mary Prince, Stormzy, Charles Darwin and Noor Inayat Khan, Great Britons is not only a celebration of our history as an island, but also as part of a far larger and greater world.
Told by talented writer and children’s book critic Imogen Russell Williams and brought to life by Sara Mulvanny’s vivid illustration, Great Britons is a wonderful addition to any children’s bookshelf – and the perfect book for children curious about British history.
