The Perfect Rebel

Written by Deborah Chancellor

Key Stage 3

LoveReading View on The Perfect Rebel

Interest Age 11+ Reading Age 8+. This is a great book for children who want a book that's shorter with fewer words on the page than your typical book for this age range whilst at the same time getting a great snapshot to a very important part of our history.  This is the story of Emily Davison, a suffragette who campaigned hard to get votes for women in the early part of the 20th century. She died in the process, under the King’s horse at the Derby meeting at Epsom, but it was this action that really began the process of giving the vote to women. At only 64 pages in length, it’s a book that even the most reluctant reader will breeze through.
