My favourite page was when she scribbled over her pet names because she doesn’t like them!
Maryam says: I like Ruby because she is funny and she can do anything she wants. My favourite page was when she scribbled over her pet names because she doesn’t like them.
Mum says: We really loved this book as Ruby is very similar to Maryam in some regards. Ruby is fiesty and knows her mind and has unlimited energy. Her parents’ bafflement really comes through the illustrations. A great book to show girls they are strong and can do anything they set their minds to.
