About the Author

Katherine Halligan grew up near the beach in California with her nose in a book and her toes in the sand. She studied arts, literature, history, and languages, travelling and living all over the world. Her love of words and pictures led her to work as a publisher, writing over 100 books for children along the way. She lives--once again--near the beaches in California with her husband and their two daughters.

Sarah Walsh grew up in upstate New York. When she was young she was obsessed with animals. So much so that she wanted to be one, and wore different animal costumes all year round. She also knew in her heart that she would be an artist someday...if she worked hard enough! Sarah is now an internationally published illustrator and lives with her family in Kansas City.

Reviews

* "The duo devotes each bustling, scrapbook collage-style spread to a different subject, layering biographical details against expressive portraits, photographs, and ephemera....Halligan and Walsh offer approachable educational content about lesser-known subjects in a warm and vibrant visual presentation."--Publisher's Weekly - starred review
"This attractive collection profiles 50 inspiring women across the centuries, from the famous to those who aren't (but should be)....After so many years of ignoring female accomplishments, this volume is a welcome addition to the many recent efforts to join her-story with his-story to reflect our-story."--School Library Connection
"From its oversize dimensions to its fantastic use of color, this volume draws readers into the life of each woman it profiles....The result evokes a treasured, hand-crafted scrapbook rather than a dry, biographical dictionary....This joyful introduction to significant women throughout history is highly recommended."--School Library Journal
