From the Reviews:
“A series dedicated to men and women who have shown courage in their convictions. Each volume introduces 28 such individuals, who represent a mix of ages, nationalities, and areas of influence. Eight additional short profiles can be found in the back matter of each volume and offer a few more examples. Scientists, sports stars, activists, and artists each have a one-page profile and an accompanying full-page portrait. The entries describe any lasting legacies, such as foundations, initiatives, or charities begun by or named after the individuals. The portraits are stylized representations taken from photos or other recognizable images. The authors include negative facts along with the positive accomplishments.”
School Library Journal

“A broad range of notable women are profiled in this installment in the Real Lives series, which offers single-page explanations of each woman’s achievements, paired with a bold, pop art–style portrait on the facing page. The authors cover an impressive scope of figures, from familiar faces, such as Rosa Parks, Marie Curie, and Amelia Earhart, to less-well-known women, such as Panmela Castro, a graffiti artist from Brazil, and Maharani of Jhansi, a young Indian woman who led a group of rebels attacking British occupying forces. The geographical variety is also notable—the women featured hail from the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia.”

“Exceptionally informative and impressively enhanced for young readers with bold color schemes and a stylized photographs or illustrations, "Unsung Heroes" is especially recommended for elementary school and community library biography collections for children. Also very highly recommended by the writing team of Toby Reynolds & Paul Calver is their companion volume: "Fearless Women: Courageous Females who Refused to be Denied."”
The Midwest Book Review

"This is an important series about people who contributed to humanity and changed the course of many lives. Each volume portrays the courage and conviction of people who may not be well known but who achieved their goals and altered the world against all odds."
