Praise

“Though Cochrane’s may not be a household name, Hannigan seeks to change that, presenting the events chronologically and factually, interspersing the narration with quotes and information about other inventors of the period, women included. Green’s bright digital illustrations capture Josephine’s determination and emotions and enhance the text with diagrams, sketches, and charming homey details, including dishes and tools floating by. A wonderfully realized introduction to a fascinating, long-overlooked woman.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Hannigan portrays Cochrane as astrong-minded woman who succeeded despite legal and social constraints on women’s actions, while Green’s colorful digital illustrations provide appropriate character portrayals, period settings, and clothing for the story. The informative back matter offers introductions to 16 other women inventors as well as more information on Cochrane and her company. A picture book celebrating a little-known inventor.”—Booklist
