After the popularity of the Rebel Girls and Little People, Big Dreams books about inspirational women, it was only a matter of time before we saw similar books aimed at boys. Since we ran our Empowering Children's Books for IWD post, we've had many, many requests from you guys for a round-up of books featuring inspiring males who may have veered off the traditional path en route to success, so here it is.
