Reviews

β˜… "The concise text includes well-chosen details and quotes that help create a multifaceted personality on the page, while letting young readers know how limited the options were for an eighteenth-century woman and how close Herschel came to living her life in obscurity, knitting socks and scrubbing pans. The appealing illustrations--pen-and-ink drawings with watercolor washes--bring the historical settings to life. An engaging introduction to a notable woman in astronomy."--Booklist, Starred Review

"An inspiring tale of scientific discovery despite obstacles, with a feminist point of view."--Kirkus Reviews
