About the Author

Jennifer Fosberry is a New York Times bestselling children's book author and board game designer. After working in the high-tech industry in Silicon Valley and running away to Costa Rica for a few years, she returned to the San Francisco Bay area to read, write, game, and try to get out of housework. She lives with her patient husband, her three darling children, and her two little dogs, too.
Mike Litwin is an award-winning illustrator who combines a variety of media to create scenes that serve the imagination and education of children. In other words, he's a big kid who gets paid to make pictures all day. It pretty much rocks. He is best known for his work on the New York Times best-selling picture books My Name is Not Isabella, My Name is Not Alexander, and Isabella: Girl on the Go.


"With a spunky female heroine as the star, it's no wonder Fosberry's "Isabella" series is so popular...a boisterous girl-power book for the ages." - Lee Littlewood, Creators Syndicate
"I have read other books in the Isabella series, and I love how she imagines herself to be lots of different characters and even real people. It is interesting to learn about the many different ways a girl could grow up to be a leader. - Susan Faith, Age 8" - Kids Book Buzz
"I think this book is a fantastic way to introduce kids, boys and girls alike, to some women who have shaped US history through their role in politics. I like the extended biographies at the end of the book, since many of these women were new names to me as well." - Growing My Kids Reviews
"The heroine of My Name Is Not Isabella highlights pioneering women in American politics... Biographical background about each politico and a timeline of other female firsts round out a light introduction to women's role in U.S. political history. " - Publishers Weekly
"There's lots of fun wordplay ("Let's vote on breakfast." "Capital idea!") and cheerful artwork throughout this delightful, empowering picture book, ending with a time line and bios for each of these amazing women.
" - Good Reads with Ronna
"Fossberry's spunky spokeswoman for women knows her stuff, and she gives Isabella's mother some clever puns on the accomplishments of these historic women.
" - Books For Kids
"This books help shine a spotlight on history making female politicians. I love that is shows examples of real life women politicians in a fun way but also has a detailed timeline of the actual history of women in politics at the end.
" - Crafty Mama
"If you're looking for a gift to inspire the future female leader in your life, consider... Isabella: Girl in Charge...The illustrations fit the story well, and the book itself provides a great way to incorporate mini history lessons and to encourage girls to dream big. " - Motherhood Moment
"Spending some part of your day teaching whomever you're reading this to about great women in the past, is super fun. The book brings out a great amount if discussion and can even become a fun history project for little ones.
