"Wonder Women: A Happy Families Card Game" by Isabel Thomas and Laura Bernard "Laurence King Publishing"

Yes, yes I know you might feel it's still a little too early to start Christmas Shopping, but time is ticking by...
So if you're looking for last minute stocking fillers for your mighty guys and girls, how about a classic card game to round off a year where we've been inundated by amazing and inspirational books about awesome women?

Yep that's right - a card game that takes the classic "Happy Families" game and turns it into a veritable feast for the eyes, full of utterly amazing female figures from history and the present day.

Team up Serena Williams with Simone Biles, match Amelia Earhart with Valentina Tereshkova, join Malala Yousafzai with Emmeline Pankhurst. 

Collect illustrated cards of 44 of the most inspirational women of all time and place them into groups including aviation, sport, activism, art, science and fashion (instead of the usual families - neat idea or what!) 

See which of your friends knows the most about awesome women! 

Based on HAPPY FAMILIES, this game will inspire girls (and boys) who already know that there's more to life than being a princess!

A brilliant idea, perfect for this year's amazing celebrations of women and their achievements in so many different fields. 

"Wonder Women" a Happy Families Card Game by Isabel Thomas and Laura Bernard is out now, published by Laurence King (kindly supplied for review)
