Illustrators come together for ‘Sister Like You’

Author Jade Coles’ upcoming book, entitled Sister Like You, profiles some of the most fierce female rulers in ancient history. It includes nine engaging tales coupled with illustrations from many noted female illustrators including, Ellie Andrews, Alice Tye, Kaye Blegvad, Donya Todd, Charlotte Trounce, Brigid Deacon and Ana Galvan.

The book chronicles stories about legendary women who were not only great rulers but also great military generals, such as Cleopatra, Queen Elizabeth I, Catherine the Great, Empress Dowager Cixi and Queen Njinga Mbande. The colourful illustrations change in style and approach, individualised for each compressed historical story, which have been edited to a ‘digestible, radical level’.

The book has been published by Belly Kids and is available for pre-order at £7 (just over $12) from the publisher’s website.

In the words of the author, ‘Sister Like You features illustrations and profiles of some of the most badass historical women in history’.
