The Cottonwool Doctor: The Story of James Barry by Bridgitte Chemaly Potton, Jean de Wet and Michelle Matthews

Margaret was clever and curious. Margaret had big dreams. But 200 years ago a girl could not become a doctor. So she cut off her hair and she put on boy’s clothes. From then onwards, no one knew that Margaret was a girl. She became James Barry.
