Brave New Girl BOOK

Being Fearless

Brave New Girl- part girl, part animal, part ninja who goes fearlessly out into the world was created by artist Lou Hamilton when her daughter Ruby was leaving home. One by one the drawings popped out of her pencil and BNG was born. The book of her drawings and encouraging captions is published by Orion Spring, and her next book FEAR LESS, an illustrated self-coaching book follows in April 2018.

BNG is for every girl and woman who is facing something a little scary but who doesn’t want to be held back by her fears

The Book- How to be Fearless

    If I were a fairy-godmother I would drop Lou’s little book in every girl’s lap. From what I saw, it is delightful, uplifting, touching, fun, and BRAVE!
