Brazen: Rebel Women Who Rocked the World by Penelope Bagieu (Graphic Novel Mini Review)

I sat down with my daughter on my lap. We opened this book together and I she thumbed through the two dozen or so biographies… she chose a couple to dive into. At a 5-6 pages apiece, these mini life stories were perfect introductions to strong, vibrant women.

My daughter liked the stories of the real bearded lady, Empress Wu Zhoa, and the rapper Sonita Alizadah.

The comic style is very easy to read, and the author includes funny quips and commentary that make each piece enjoyable. I loved the two-page thematic collage that follows each bio.

A real treasure of some well-known figures and many who need this kind of exposure.

Highly recommended!

  1. lol we have such similar taste in books. I am currently reading this to my daughter. She loves the pictures, I love that brazen woman do not have to be Joan of Arc or Marie Currie. They can be The Bearded Lady or The Wicked Witch from The Wizard of Oz.
