AMAZING BABES by Eliza Sarlos and Grace Lee. This is the book that inspired a traveling writers singing spectacular!
I first heard about Amazing Babes at the EMERGING WRITERS FESTIVAL. At the festival, it was in song form, but I got the drift of it.
So it’s a beautiful book. It’s well made, lovely to look at and easy to read.
Amazing Babes is a celebration of innovative, brave and world-changing women. When I first read this book I felt a little tingle run down my spine. It’s a really inspiring book, for grown-ups as much as little people.
AMAZING BABES was published in 2013 by Scribe in Australia. It’s a collaboration between writer and illustrator which started as a one of a kind book, written by Eliza Sarlos for her son Arthur. It was a birthday present for Arthur. Eliza asked longtime friend Grace Lee to help bring the words to life and the result is gorgeous portraits that introduce new readers to the lives of these strong, powerful and world changing women.
I actually have a copy of this in my library and we have a house without children. Friends and family love reading it when it’s laying around on the coffee table.
