We can all make our wildest dreams come true. And the Fantastically Great Women Scientists in this book prove that women can do anything.

As a child Mae Jemison imagined herself reaching for the stars and that's exactly what she did: she became the first African-American woman to go into space. When Elizabeth Blackwell was told women weren't allowed to be doctors, she didn't take no for an answer. Tu Youyou spent months on a remote island during the Vietnam War to try and invent a treatment for malaria - and she did it.
With fun design features, such as comic strips, family trees, maps and more, this book celebrates the epic adventures and incredible discoveries of these trail-blazing women and will inspire girls and boys to chase their own dreams too.
