I loved The Brontës, which was the inaugural title for Anna Doherty’s series Fantastically Feminist series and was really pleased to find out that there was to be a new volume on Michelle Obama: The Fantastically Feminist (and Totally True) Story of the Inspirational Activist and Campaigner (Wren & Rook). You don’t really get more empowering and inspiring a woman than this! From her childhood in Chicago to her post-First Lady work, this is a brilliant, vibrant and energetic biography. I love Anna Doherty’s approach to non-fiction. Her mixed media artwork, her use of a single colour (purple in this case), her quirky drawings bring the biographical information in a way that is so attractive. Think about Christmas: you could buy Michelle Obama’s Becoming for the parent, and this one for the child; it would make a lovely shared reading experience!
I really love this series (and cannot wait for the volume on Emma Watson die out next year) and I am delighted that as part of the blog tour, we have been allowed a little peek in Anna’s creative process:
Thank you for letting us have a peek in your work, Anna!
