Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo, Chief Executive Officer and Creative Director, respectively, of Timbuku Labs in San Francisco, are redefining children’s media. Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls is their anthology of short, illustrated international women’s biographies—which became the quickest and most funded children’s book in crowdfunding history after a Kickstarter campaign and is now an international bestseller in multiple languages. (And now, they’re working on Volume II.) The book was their modest follow up to Timbuktu, their award winning digital children’s news magazine. At the core of their company is this belief: that children, especially young girls, can be active, informed world citizens and overcome the challenges reality presents with imagination.
