This fantastic book is now my book love of the year. As a Muslim reader I ponder - where was this book my entire life!? So inspiring and insightful, this book I feel is a wonderful opportunity to for Muslim and Non-Muslim readers alike to read about notable Muslims whom made their mark on the world. This book casts positive light and what I love the most is how the stories include Muslims from ancient history, modern history and current times. I learnt a lot reading this book and I was left wond ...more

I can't fault this one at all. Well written, beautifully illustrated, multicultural and multiracial with some great kids activities in the back. A great addition for school classrooms and libraries. ...more

On en apprend énormément sur plein de femmes et d’hommes musulmans qui ont marqué le monde à leur manière. J’ai adoré la diversité qui au final représente totalement la communauté musulmane qui est plurielle et le fait qu’on ait des portraits contemporains et plus anciens. J’ai découvert plein de personnes que je ne connaissais pas et j’ai adoré la manière dont le livre est conçu :
On a 2-3 pages par personnes, une illustration, une petite biographie et une anecdote. Je conseille à 100%

Super book full of short biographies of Muslims who achieved great things. There were several names that I did know but also many that I didn't. The biographies are clearly written and full of factual information alongside gorgeous illustrations. A must for any class bookshelf. ...more

Short bios written as stories about amazing humans that are also Muslim. The style and format of the book is similar to Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls but it's much better written and more eloquent. The language used in some of the stories is aimed at older children but that doesn't mean that younger children can't enjoy it. I have both a 10-year-old and a 5-year-old. Both of them have been asking me to read stories from the book. I appreciate that the book has chosen a wide variety of people ...more

Thank you to Puffin Books for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review.

I loved this book so much! Full of amazing Muslims throughout history and all over the world. It was so wonderful to see so many Muslims who often are forgotten and don’t get included in other history books and I loved it so much.

This book is the book that I have spent my whole life wishing for. It is full of such incredible Muslims throughout history and all over the world and I just loved seeing them in the boo
