An exquisitely illustrated history of the suffragette movement, created by New York Times bestselling illustrator, David Roberts.

2018 marks a century since the first women won the vote in the United Kingdom, and Suffragette tells the story of their fight. This is a tale of astounding bravery, ingenuity, and strength.

David's conversational style is accessible and his artwork full of rich detail, bringing to life the many vivid characters of the Suffragette movement - from the militant activist Rosa May Billinghurst to the world-famous Emmeline Pankhurst.

Covering the whole range of suffragette experiences - from aristocrats to the middle and working classes, as well as a look at the global struggle for universal suffrage, Suffragette is a fantastic introduction to a fascinating topic.

David Roberts has earned great acclaim for his distinctive illustrations. David's work includes collaborations with his sister Lynn Roberts on retellings of several classic fairy stories, including Little Red, which was shortlisted for the 2005 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal. His first collaboration with Julia Donaldson - Tyrannosaurus Drip - was published in 2007 by Macmillan, and since then they have worked together on several other picture books. David is also the illustrator of the New York Times bestselling Rosie Revere, Engineer and Ada Twist, Scientist, both written by Andrea Beaty. David Roberts has been fascinated by the Suffragettes since his school days, and his illustrated history of the fight for women's suffrage is a real passion project. He lives in London, England.
