The unique narrative style of "Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls" transforms each biography in a fairy-tale, filling the readers with wonder and with a burning curiosity to know more about each hero.

"Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 2" features stunning artwork created by 70 female artists from all over the world.

 Don't take our word for it.

What's new in Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 2?

1. 100 NEW PORTRAITS, 100 NEW STORIES: Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 2 is an entirely new collection of 100 bedtime stories about extraordinary women from all over the world. It boasts a brand new graphic design + 100 incredible new portraits created by the best female artists of our time.

 

 

 

2. DIVERSITY: Having a passionate community that spans across 70+ countries is a great way to discover incredible stories. The stories in Volume 2 are 100% stories you told us about. Now, we can all share them. We can't wait, because they truly are breath-taking.

 

 

3. A MAP: Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 2 includes a beautiful, detachable map, so your children can check out where each of their heroes comes from.

4. A GLOSSARY: It has an illustrated glossary, so your kids can expand their vocabulary while learning about incredible female role models.

Plus, it has all of the things that made Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls precious and unique.

 

 

 

Wouldn't it be cool to have empowering, exciting stories to listen to while you drive your kids to school? Or while you're on your way to a job interview?

We want to turn your favorite stories into sound-rich, immersive adventures that can carry you and your children to NASA, with Margaret Hamilton during the launch of Apollo 11. We want you to listen to the songs Grace O'Malley used to sing with her pirate friends while loading cannons. 

We called our favorite sound designer in the world, Elettra Bargiacchi, and run the idea by her. She is excited, and ready to go!

3. THE REBEL GIRLS' GIFT BOX

Volume 1 and Volume 2 contained in a beautiful gift box! 200 tales of extraordinary women for the perfect Holiday gift.

4. REBEL GIRLS' HALL OF FAME

One of the most beloved rewards (HURRY, this is limited to 250 backers!). Your one opportunity to include the name of your favorite girls in the Rebel Girls' Hall of Fame, among the girls who are going to change the world. This is only available for Kickstarter backers and it will go fast.

When we launched our first campaign, we were two. Thanks to your support, over the past 12 months, our team has grown from 2 to 10 full time rebels. Building a company that embodies the same values as the book is one of the most inspiring challenges that this book brought to us.

Risks and challenges

Risks are low. We've done this before and we've delivered all our rewards on time! Plus, this time we can count on a bigger team of 10 people who are working with us every day to bring these new two fantastic projects to life. Our artists are already working on the new portraits, our manufacturer in Canada is ready to print, and our fulfillment centers in Chicago, Brooklyn, LA and San Francisco are up and running!
The podcast is a new challenge for us (as was the book, last year). However, this is not the first time we produce audio: in fact, we created 12 mobile apps before this book and each of them had a strong audio component (especially Timbuktu Magazine, for which we produced 50+ audio stories). In fact, Elettra Bargiacchi has worked as our sound designer for a very long time (that's how we know how exceptional she is). To further minimize risks for the production of the podcast, we are hiring a very experienced radio producer.
