Take a look inside What Are Little Girls Made of? – our new nursery rhyme collection

This September we are incredibly proud to be publishing a new nursery rhyme collection with a feminist twist – What Are Little Girls Made of?, written by Jeanne Willis and illustrated by Isabelle Follath. And today, you can take a first look inside the book.

This wonderful and inspiring collection of reworked nursery rhymes is also a stunning physical object: we’re publishing the book in a gorgeous small hardback format, complete with jacket and luxurious paper.

With brilliantly funny rhymes by Jeanne Willis, and charming, witty illustrations by Isabelle Follath, these nursery rhymes prove that girls can be the heroes of any story. This book is the perfect gift – a wonderful book for children and adults alike to read aloud or enjoy alone.

Think you know your favourite classic nursery rhymes? Think again! In this witty reworking of popular nursery rhymes, Georgie Porgie doesn’t dare to make the girls cry, Little Bo-Peep’s sheep are all present and correct, thank you, and it’s the queen, OF COURSE, who fixes Humpty Dumpty.

Here’s a digital preview of the book:

What Are Little Girls Made of? will be in bookshops this September – you can find out more about the book here. If you’d like to stay up-to-date with all of our books news, you can sign up to our books newsletter with the form at the bottom of this page.
