Editorial Reviews


“A riveting account of Malala’s life and achievements. Galat’s inspirational, empathetic writing introduces the reader to a young girl whose courage and determination made the phrase ‘I am Malala’ ring throughout the world. Brilliant illustrations and layout augment the book’s beauty and relevance.” ―Basarat M. Kazim, president of Alif Laila Book Bus Society, IBBY representative for Pakistan, children's writer, and literacy/education advocate

“The entire narrative is very accessible and well written, and I really loved how Jump in the Think Tank and other features, including the glossary and bibliography, enhanced the text. This biography has a wonderful, positive message throughout! Highly recommended.” ―Karen Upper, library services, Near North District School Board

“Joan Marie Galat makes the inspirational leadership of Malala Yousafzai beautifully accessible to new readers in an educational, enticing, and hopeful way. She gives parents, caregivers, teachers, and other adults an opportunity to be present with children on the power of forgiveness, and how people are making the world a better place.” ―Peter Smyth MSW, RSW, MSM social worker and author

“At a time when young readers need to develop independent learning skills, The Story of Malala Yousafzai offers helpful scaffolds for learning such as colorful visuals, a glossary, a quick quiz to test comprehension, and think tank questions to put the reader in Malala’s shoes (‘How would you feel if you couldn’t do what you want just because you’re a boy or a girl?’). This is the most up-to-date biography for children about the Nobel Prize winner, Oxford grad, and activist.” ―Heather McKend, Head of Children’s Services, Saint John Free Public Library

Although she started making books at the age of nine, Joan Marie Galat wasn’t published until she was 12 years old, when she became a paid weekly newspaper columnist. Today she is the international award-winning author of more than 20 books in eight languages.

Joan shares her love of the stars in the Dot to Dot in the Sky series, which combines sky science with the ancient myths that give night sky objects their names. Her first book, Dot to Dot in the Sky - Stories in the Stars, became a best seller within six weeks of its release. Joan's National Geographic Kids title: Solve This! Wild and Wacky Challenges for the Genius Engineer in You, steers young readers into building their creativity through the engineering process.

Joan’s books for children explore engineering, astronomy, ancient myths and legends, light pollution, volcanoes, history, nature, wildlife, ecology, and other topics. Her work for adults include a travel guide and motivational title.

A prolific writer for all ages and relentless promoter of reading, Joan uses storytelling to connect with audiences. She offers presentations in person and via Skype. Career highlights have involved speaking at a United Nations Environment Programme event in South Korea; presenting at an international book fair in Seoul; touring in Australia; and presenting at schools and libraries across Canada.

Joan operates MoonDot Media, a communications business offering writing and editing solutions in broadcast, print, and multi-media.
