Full Description

You don’t need a mask or cloak to be a hero, nor do you need superpowers – merely courage and determination. There are many such heroes, everywhere, from sport to science, to art and politics. These men and women are beyond us, they have shown it is possible to unite brains with love. What makes their lives and adventures so special is that they are so normal, just like you and me. Some have been able to overcome the greatest obstacles to better the most unthinkable challenges, and others have had to try and try again to obtain revolutionary achievements, but all have had an incredible drive. Martin Luther King, Frida Kahlo, Stephen Hawkins, Bebe Vio… a long list of people who, from the beginning of the 20th century until today, encourage us to think of what we could all be capable of. This book will give you some interesting facts and unknown information on these contemporary heroes, as exceptional as they are normal. Ages: 8 plus
