Noisemakers is the first ever book from Kazoo, the quarterly, indie print magazine for girls, ages 5 to 12, which Vogue calls “the magazine for little girls who want to grow up to be president,” and Roxane Gay calls “kickass.” Kazoo first made history in 2016 as the highest-funded journalism campaign Kickstarter had ever seen and again in 2019 when it became the first and only kids’ magazine ever to win the prestigious National Magazine Award for General Excellence (2019). “What sets Kazoo apart is that we celebrate girls for being smart, strong, fierce and true to themselves, and everything we do supports that mission,” says Editor-in-Chief and founder Erin Bried. “Plus, it’s just really fun to read.” Contributors have included Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Ellen DeGeneres, Misty Copeland, Elizabeth Warren, Dolores Huerta, Shonda Rhimes and many more.

Here’s what people are saying about Noisemakers: 25 Women Who Raised Their Voices & Changed the World:

“All the women in this book were discouraged from doing the work they were born to do. Fortunately, they didn’t let that stop them. Here are their riveting stories, told in unputdownable comics. I wish I’d had NOISEMAKERS when I was growing up.” — Alison Bechdel (Fun Home)

“Thoughtful, timely and Super-Engaging. So glad the powerhouse young people coming up have Kazoo as a blueprint, a roadmap, and a glimpse into history.”

— Jacqueline Woodson, National Ambassador to Young People’s Literature

“Astonishing comics about world-changing women. What could possibly be better?”

— Neil Gaiman (Coraline)

“The reason I (secretly) think of Kazoo Magazine as ‘Vitamin K’ is because it’s so necessary for building the strength of girls. I’m truly proud to have a piece (beside so many artists whose work I sincerely LOVE) in Kazoo’s delicious new anthology – NOISEMAKERS.” — Emil Ferris

Noisemakers is an ambitious and important book featuring diverse stories, stunning cartooning and a positive message that will resonate with young girls, their parents, teachers, aspiring cartoonists, librarians, and booksellers and book critics alike.
