We are thrilled to be bringing the wonderful picture book author Stephanie Taylor to visit your child's school! Stephanie is the author of I'm Going To Be A Princess, the heart-warming and funny story about Maya who discovers the achievements of some amazing Black women who changed the world. During the event Stephanie will invite the children to step into the story, and just like Maya think about all the possibilities of things they can be when they grown up. The book is illustrated throughout by the award-winning Jade Orlando.


We know that author visits are always fun and inspiring, and that the children often want to read and share the author's books afterwards. Following the event there will be an opportunity for the children to meet Stephanie and purchase copies of the book, which Stephanie will personalise and sign to make them extra special.

Pre-orders need to be with us by 4pm on Thursday 27th June, and please choose School Event as the delivery option from the drop down menu at the checkout.

I'm Going To Be A Princess by Stephanie Taylor, illustrated by Jade Orlando


A warm and witty celebration of the lives of amazing Black women. What will Maya be when she grows up? A rocket scientist like Annie Easley? An Olympic athlete like Alice Coachman? A brain surgeon like Alexa Canady?

An uplifting and empowering picture book that celebrates the lives of incredible Black women in a moving and funny narrative, while Jade Orlando's colorful art perfectly captures the story thoughout.
