Praise for They Did What? 50 Unbelievable Women and Their Fascinating (and True!) Stories

“Striking a witty and celebratory tone, Mitchell shares 50 brief stories about influential women past and present . . . The arrangement of contemporary figures alongside those from the distant past should help give readers the sense that history is unfolding all around them.”–Publishers Weekly


“Spanning every field from politics to fashion design, this book offers a lengthy list of fearless and remarkable females. Women, contemporary and historical, from all corners of the globe are included . . . The narratives are brief, limited to two or three pages, designed to whet the curiosity of readers . . .  Fast paced and high interest, this collective biography utilizes stories of compassion, cunning, and bravery to explore what it means to be not just an accomplished woman but an accomplished human being.”–Booklist 

“Saundra Mitchell has created 50 fascinating biographical vignettes from across history to entertain, amaze, and ignite the reader’s curiosity to learn more . . .  [readers] will love it because of the anecdotal nature of the stories.”–School Library Connection


“Chock-full of trivial tidbits . . . Young people . . . will likely enjoy browsing the book.”–VOYA
