    Bjoerk, Dr Seuss, Whoopi Goldberg, Andy Warhol, Ellen MacArthur, Greta Gerwig, Andrea Bocelli, Hua Mulan ... these are men and women who all dared to be different. Boys will be boys and girls will be girls - or so the meaningless saying goes. Because what if you're a girl and you like cage fighting? Or you're a boy and you love ballet? And what if you've always dreamed of being a scientist but you can't see anyone who looks or sounds like you, and who has left a legacy - in the form of microscopes and Bunsen burners - for you to follow? This is the book for children who want to know about the lives of those heroes who have led the way, changing the world for the better as they go. Following the runaway success of Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different, parents asked for a celebration of role models of both genders for boys and girls within the same book. Stories for Kids Who Dare to Be Different is the answer. These are the extraordinary stories of 100 famous and not-so-famous men and women, every single one of them an inspiring pioneer and creative genius in their own way, who broke the mould and made their dreams come true. Like Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different, this is a beautifully illustrated, evocative and inspirational book of amazing stories of amazing people, that will delight sons and daughters, nephews and nieces, and give them the courage to be themselves.

For a whole host of reasons, it's easy for reading (and the enjoyment of reading) to take a backseat during the complex teenage years. But, with this range of young adult books, we're sure that the teenager in your life will more likely be seen with a book in tow than without.

Aid the development of reading tastes

Being a teenager is about defining yourself – and alongside likes and dislikes, literature can play a bit part in making an individual. Whether you or the teenager you're buying for prefers fantasy, the supernatural, romance, realist or dystopian books, our collection is varied enough to appeal to all developing interests.

Give the gift of screen-free knowledge

The teenage years are as much about learning and studying as they are about finding your interests. Our range of non-fiction titles can help expand the mind in ever fascinating ways - from journals and autobiographies to exam companions, there's plenty to explore, and they're 100% screen-free!
