Horn Book Review

Illustrated by Thirteen "Extraordinary Women." Hood writes poems, in various styles, about fourteen young women in history who resisted and persisted--from Molly Williams, first American woman fire fighter (1780s) to activist Malala Yousafzai, the youngest Nobel Prize winner (2014). Each spread of this attractive book was created by a different female illustrator, including Selina Alko, Sophie Blackall, LeUyen Pham, and Melissa Sweet. Reading list, timeline, websites. Bib.
