Dear rebels, 

Can you believe there are 500,000 homes in the world where "Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls" is being read? WOW.

We had to find a special way to celebrate! And...

Ta-dah!!! POSTERS ARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER. They will start shipping at the end of the month.

Here's Ada Lovelace, portrayed by the great Italian artist, Elisabetta Stoinich.


The posters are 18x24 inches. Offset printing on 80# Rolland Smooth White Opaque Paper. Carefully rolled and shipped in a protective tube.

Here's Jacquotte Delahaye, portrayed by Rita Petruccioli.


We created a special promo-code for you Kickstarter backers: 

Use KICKSTARTER-SPECIAL at checkout to get $5 off each poster! Free shipping in the US, and, international rebels, you only pay shipping once even if you buy more then one poster! We ship everywhere (Australia and UK included).

We have 9 different portraits + the cover. Check them all out here.


The pop singer Lorde was spotted on Instagram reading Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls to a bearded friend.

 And then this:

 And here is Manal Al-Sharif holding the book with her portrait! <3 <3



Here's the cover in Turkish, where Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls is doing incredibly well with 28,000 copies sold!

 In Italy, for the 10th week in a row, Storie della Buonanotte per Bambine Ribelli is the #1 bestseller overall, with more than 200,000 copies sold, and that makes us feel a bit...

In the UK, every copy of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls is sold every 2 minutes. As the Times stated in this interview. Which makes us feel like this:

But don't kid yourself! We're not spending our days riding armchairs tied on top of vintage vehicles. 

Actually, we're are working on something new, and are quite excited about it. We can't tell you much more now, but keep your eyes on our Instagram and Facebook 'cause we'll be dropping hints and questions. Also, we are still looking for a radio producer (email if you want to know more), but we hired a sales agent (welcome to the team McCall! And an assistant: hello Hana!)

NOW: go check out the 10 available prints by clicking HERE

Always stay rebel,

Elena & Francesca

      I gave my last copy to my niece a couple of weeks ago. When I saw her mom recently, she said I'm not sure she is reading it yet. Then Audrey piped up - Mom, I read the whole thing already!! Everybody loves it. I am so happy that I was a very small part of such a courageous project. Congratulations on the success of women and girls everywhere.

      I ordered a book and coloring book a long time ago and have yet to receive my copy. How do I get my copy??

      I'd love two for my 7 year old twins, but given the shipping coat to the UK, I will need to give them a miss. My girls did dress up as Marie Curie and Florence Nightingale for Book Day at their school recently, they loved telling their stories to the rest of the kids in their class!

      I'd love to get one, and if I was in the US it'd only cost me 15$... but since I'm in EU, it bumps up to 34$!!
