Reviews

"Any one of these stories would make a rousing picture book biography; 29 of them in one volume produces a work whose energy and wit will spur readers to get going and change the world." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "Bagieu delivers a piece de resistance that succinctly summarizes the obstacles and victories of these daring women. Insightful and clever, at times infuriating and disheartening, this serves as a reminder that the hardships women face today have been shared--and overcome--by many others." --Kirkus, starred review "A strikingly original collective biography for casual readers, students, and those looking for inspiration in their own lives." --School Library Journal, starred review "This dynamic paean to women's flair for fierce resistance will have readers happily sifting through history--and tackling the future with renewed verve. Rock on, ladies." --Booklist, starred review "This is an encouraging, uplifting book to highlight in any library's women's history collection. It will be an inspiration to many young adult readers and browsers." --VOYA, starred review "Whether sparked by cathartic outrage, admiration, or simple bemusement, Bagieu lets her passion imbue her bios and crafts each entry into a portrait of a woman you absolutely must hang out with for a long weekend."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books starred review "We swooned over California Dreamin', French cartoonist Penelope Bagieu's biography of the Mamas & the Papas singer Cass Elliot, and now Bagieu is back with a look at a wider array of influential women throughout history... Inventive, impressive cartooning." --Paste Magazine, from their "40 Most Anticipated Comics of 2018" "Bagieu's writing is sly and understated, and her panels combine impish comedy with unexpected moments of sensuousness." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "Bagieu delivers a piece de resistance that succinctly summarizes the obstacles and victories of these daring women.

And ink becomes lifeblood...her characters not only breathe and pulsate with vivid life. They also seem entirely, organically authentic in their own skin." --The Washington Post Praise for California Dreamin' "Bagieu's drawings are superlative: soft pencil lines that convey detail without constraining her figures and that animate the characters' exuberant facial expressions." --The Paris Review
