'Make More Noise!' is a book created to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first women in the UK gaining the right to vote. The book contains a collection of short stories written by well-known female authors, including Emma Carroll, M.G. Leonard and Kiran Millwood Hargrave, among other celebrated writers. The stories each feature the strong voice of a female character, some fictitious and others based on real people.
What is remarkable is not just the strength of the female voices singing out from each story, but the way in which the voices of the collection come together to create a chorus of girls, from across time and space, singing beautifully in a bid to ‘make more noise’ and celebrate the equality that the #VotesForWomen campaign represents. This is suitable for boys and girls in upper KS2 and a worthy addition to every school library.
