The third book in the best-selling Jackie French historical series that places girls centre stage.
Ming Qong is convinced that girls have changed history throughout the world.
She's faced danger and adventure when Herstory sent her to the past to witness girls' bravery in the incredible feats left out of 'histories'. Now Ming asks Herstory for another time-travelling quest - this time, one that is less confronting.
Ming finds herself in relative luxury, heading to an unknown destination on a ship carrying royal Saxon sheep, travelling with the girls who care for them.
What do female shepherds have to do with history? And is it even possible for sheep to be royal?
As Ming knows only too well, change is never easy, so how can one girl - and a sheep - change the world?
From one of Australia's favourite authors comes an inspiring series for all the young people who will, one day, change the world.
Praise for Ming and Marie Spy for Freedom:
'... this story based on true facts is a must read. It is full of danger, apprehension, excitement, and the opportunity to learn about the roles women and girls played in major historical events and can play in the future. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.'
