Inspired by the publication of The Huntress: Sea by Sarah Driver and its remarkable heroine Mouse, CLPE have produced a booklist of Females in Fantasy Fiction to celebrate other great female characters in fantasy fiction. See if your own favourite is included.
Our Poetryline website has been highly commended in this year’s prestigious Education Resources Awards 2017 in the Free Educational Category. CLPE was also shortlisted for our Power of Reading training and website.
In the spirit of International Women's Day, CLPE staff have chosen their favourite books for younger readers featuring independent female characters such as Pippi Longstocking, Katie Morag, Anna Hibiscus and many more.
