Little Cory was a shy, studious child with a great sense of justice. As a young woman and wife, she and her family felt compelled to speak out against the unjust leader who was ruining their country.
Showing bravery, reliability and honesty, she led the revolution that ended the dictator's rule and went on to become the president of the Philippines. The easy to understand and accessible text brings little Cory's story to life, from her earliest years to her passionate fight through repression and personal loss to bring democracy to the Philippines.
This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the politician's life.
