100 Inspiring Young Changemakers, the newest addition to the best-selling Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls collection, shines a spotlight on extraordinary young women making their mark on the world today.

Readers of all ages will be inspired by the fascinating stories of well-known women like Greta Thunberg, Bethany Hamilton, Bindi Irwin, Zendaya, and the Linda Lindas. They'll also meet up-and-coming powerhouses like inventor Vinisha Umashankar, sustainable fashion designer Marine Serre, stuntwoman Sadiqua Bynum, filmmaker Taegen Yardley, poet Alexandra Huynh, and environmental activist Helena Gualinga. The girls and women in the book come from different countries and backgrounds yet they all share a common goal: making the world a better place. Barrier-breaking performer Keke Palmer became the youngest talk show host in US history. Entrepreneur Mikaila Ulmer founded a lemonade company to help save honeybees. Brazilian skateboarder Rayssa Leal turned a hobby into an Olympic dream. And British body positivity advocate Megan Jayne Crabbe and Indigenous artist Te Manaia Jennings inspire kids to keep their minds healthy.

With a foreword by conservationist and TV personality Bindi Irwin, 100 Inspiring Young Changemakers features the work of authors, artists, and editors aged 30 and under. Each story is told in the whimsical fairy tale style that has made this series a success and is paired with a bold, full-page portrait created by young female and nonbinary artists from around the world. This enchanting collection encourages girls everywhere to dream big, starting small!
