Reviews

Starred Review, The Horn Book Magazine, November/December 2009: "With a light touch, complemented by Carpenter's breezy illustrations, Fleming introduces rather than stresses these issues, making room for more thoughtful discussion but never requiring it" Publishers Weekly, October 5, 2009: "Imogene's passion and comedic perseverance inspire" Kirkus Reviews, September 1, 2009: "Fleming peppers the text with famous quotes that add a layer of historical depth to the story" Booklist, July 1, 2009: "Fleming's sense of small-town space is impeccable; Carpenter's pen-and-ink art enjoyably scribbly; and the historical facts and quotes that bookend the story are just the thing to get new Imogenes fired up."
