Thank you so much to Quarto/Frances Lincoln Childrens and Netgalley for the earc to read and review.

Review: Mindy Kaling is such a wonderful person and I love that since she was a child she saw the errors in the industry and dreamt and worked so hard to make an amends to it.

I honestly didn’t know anything about her really but this book was amazing, another I incredible woman that enforced a change where it needed to be, inspired others to fight for what they believed in and made everyone laugh in the process.

This book and this whole series are always so incredible, so inspiring and perfect fir young children and anyone else too. The illustrations are always so fun to look at, the biographies are told in such a sweet, simple and perfect way, telling you the persons story in bite size pieces I love them.

So many children love to make people laugh and this book here may teach them that it can be a career too and that Mindy since a child learnt all she could to professionally make people laugh.
