Vivienne Westwood - Little People, Big Dreams Picture Book
This colourfully illustrated hardback picture book is a fantastic way to acquaint young readers with the creative life of Vivienne Westwood.
Even from a young age at school, Vivienne stood up for the outsider. In her early career in fashion she went against the grain and celebrated the punk philosophy of the day. Her designs have made her world famous, but she has stayed true to what she believes in. Inspiring, outspoken and often a shock to the system.
Told in a simple yet engaging fashion, accompanied by stylish quirky illustrations, this book is perfectly pitched for young readers discovering who their heroes and heroines are.
This delightful series (Little People, Big Dreams) introduces young readers to outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream. At the back of this book there is a facts and photo section to support the story told (great for parents and older children hungry for a few more details).
Also in this series - Dolly Parton, Emmeline Pankhurst, Amelia Earhart, Agatha Christie, Maya Angelou, Coco Chanel and Frida Kahlo.
Recommended for children 5 - 8 years.
Written by Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Laura Callaghan.
