Dame Wendy Pye

The girl from Western Australia who had a dream to teach the world to read

Dame Wendy Pye has always had her own path even before the day she was unceremoniously made redundant 35 years ago.

Within 24 hours of being made redundant, Dame Wendy had set herself the goal of creating life-changing literacy tools and had started on a path to building a global education empire, committed to teaching the children of the world to read.  Since then, Sunshine Books has sold 300 million books.

Her autobiography traces her journey from the outback of Western Australia, to working with world leaders, to the refugee camps of Lebanon – all the while creating a multi-million dollar ethical business that has positively influenced the lives of children worldwide.

The book is full of wisdom and frankness about her challenges. It is also a template for young entrepreneurs or anyone who aspires to create a business and life on their own terms.

Wendy’s autobiography will inspire, educate and entertain.

“I began my journey to teach the world to read, from a small train station in Western Australia. At that time, I had only 34 dollars and one suitcase, but I also had the determination to be successful.

This is a story about what is possible. It is a story that I hope will inspire all young people who are planning to make a difference to follow their dreams, not to be afraid of failures along the way, and also to celebrate successes with the people who have made them possible.”
