Before Malala Yousafzai (1997-) became the youngest Nobel Prize laureate, she was a girl fighting for her education in Pakistan. Growing up, Malala's father encouraged her to be politically active and speak out about her educational rights. When she did, she was shot by a member of the Taliban and the story received worldwide media coverage. Inspiring and moving, this is the story of one girl's bravery in her fight for equal rights.

Booklist - 04/15/2020 Each of these books from the First Names series (2 new titles) opens with a dramatic introductory episode, such as the kidnapping of 6-month-old Ada Lovelace or the shooting of 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai, then begins a chronological account of her life. The lively main text, informative sidebars, and many speech balloons within the illustrations offer insights into the individual’s character, her actions, and the historical period in which she grew up. Appearing on nearly every page, including the time line and glossary, Ward’s strong, expressive line drawings clarify events and emotions, while helping young readers envision a different time, place, and society. Malala Yousafzai tells of Yousafzai as child attending her father’s school in Pakistan, a passionate young advocate for the education of girls, a 15-year-old who barely survived an assassination attempt, and a humanitarian speaking out for young people’s rights worldwide. Even libraries well stocked with children’s biographies of Ada Lovelace and Malala Yousafzai should make room for these. With inviting cover art, insightful texts, and appealing illustrations, they offer a winning combination of information and kid-appeal. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
