This beautifully illustrated book celebrates the lives of 99 inspirational immigrants.

From Hans Holbein to Raheem Sterling, Freddie Mercury to Judith Kerr, and Joan Armatrading to Malala Yousafzai, these characters made a new life in Britain – and helped to make us what we are today.

Many of them featured in arrived in Britain penniless, knowing little or no English. They achieved success through their hard work and ingenuity – and their legacies shape society. Without Michael Marks, we wouldn’t have Marks & Spencer. Without Stelios Haji-Ioannou, holidaymakers would not have jetted abroad on easyJet. Without Ludwig Guttmann, there would be no Paralympics.

Without so many others featured in this book, the United Kingdom would be drastically different and immeasurably poorer.

Each entry contains an original illustration and a profile of each individual and their incredible achievements. Readers can add a 100th individual who has inspired them. Who would you add? A mother, father, friend, colleague or neighbour?
