Product description

This beautifully illustrated book, with an introduction by Bonnie Greer, celebrates the lives of 99 inspirational immigrants.



From Hans Holbein to Raheem Sterling, Freddie Mercury to Judith Kerr, and Joan Armatrading to Malala Yousafzai, it tells the stories of characters who made a new life in Britain - and helped to make us what we are today.



Many arrived almost penniless with little English. They achieved success because of their hard work and ingenuity, and their legacies have shaped British society. Without Michael Marks, we wouldn't have Marks & Spencer. Without Ludwig Guttmann, there would be no Paralympics. Without so many others featured in this book, the UK would be drastically and surprisingly different.



Each entry includes an original illustration, with a profile of each individual and their incredible achievements. Every reader can add a 100th individual who has inspired them. Who would you add - perhaps a friend, relative, colleague or neighbour?
