A female pharaoh? A woman general in the Kahn's army? A female Viking raider? No way, you say? Look again. Appearances can be deceiving ...

Based on legends, poems, letters and first-hand accounts, these seven biographical tales tell of women who disguised themselves as men. From ancient Egypt through the Middle Ages to the 19th century, this historically accurate graphic treatment is perfect to transport readers back to bygone eras. The lives of these daring women were often filled with danger and the fear of discovery. However, for the sake of freedom, ambition, love or adventure, these women risked everything. No Girls Allowed brings a contemporary edge to a part of history largely untold - until now.

No girls aloud was a great book
you got to see girls go around the world doing what boys do in their everyday lives. I think it was awesome

i thought "no Girls Allowed"
was outstanding because this novel proves that not only boys/men can be warriors,doctors etc. but also the girls can be the best at something boys and girls should have an equal respect of everything.

Intresting, great stories, but it needed to be
1. More informative. Longer stories.
2. Graphics threw it off. Made it Silver-Birch level. Grade 7-8 don't need pictures.

I actually liked this book. A lot of people in my class didn't like it, and thought it was cheesy, but I think it showed women's struggles and was pretty good.

I think it might have been better if it wasn't a graphic novel (that made it seem like it was for younger audiences) and if it had less stories or wrote more about each story.
The stories were interesting, but some were too short.

I really liked this book and all the stories that described women that dressed up like men to do the things that they were not allowed to do.
