Summary

Bloomsbury presents Fantastically Great Women Who Saved the Planet by Kate Pankhurst, read by Kate Pankhurst, with Adjoa Andoh, Harriet Carmichael and Paul Panting.

From best-selling author and illustrator Kate Pankhurst, descendant of Emmeline Pankhurst, comes another 'smart, informative, inclusive and accessible' book about trail-blazing women. This time, it's women who have helped protect our natural world from way before it was on a political agenda. Discover their untold stories.

Tackle the plastic problem with Isatou Ceesay by recycling waste into beautiful objects. Marvel at the intelligence of chimpanzees with Jane Goodall. Learn why it's important to shop fair trade and cruelty-free with Anita Roddick and The Body Shop. Resist devastating deforestation and plant seeds of change with Wangari Maathai. 

We're in an age when young people like Greta Thunberg are calling for those in power to 'wake up' and take action. Written with hope and encouragement, this audiobook shows that all actions, big and small, can be powerful in the fight against climate breakdown.
