40693-2Looking for a different kind of bedtime story, published in an alternative way? Maybe something middle grade about amazing historical female role models? Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo, authors of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls: 100 Tales of Extraordinary Women, have got you covered!

In this June 2 ‘Publishers Weekly’ article Judith Rosen explores the authors’ motivations, the themes in the new book, and the mind-blowing amount of money they raised on Kickstarter. Hint: Rebel Girls quickly became the most funded children’s book in Kickstarter history.
