Reviews

"Engaging.... Inspiring."
--Booklist
"This portrait of a quiet heroine is elegant, striking, and sure to inspire."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Bardoe's text is concise and clear, right down to kid-tailored explanations of Sophie's mathematical pursuits. McClintock's line and watercolor scenes are an engaging meld of literal scene-setting and whimsical mathematical symbolism."--BCCB
"Graceful and lyrical...an inspiring portrait of the plucky, self-taught mathematician."
--The Horn Book

"McClintock's scenes of 18th-century France are infused with a golden glow; numbers loom along city streets and burst from Germain's quill pen. Bardoe concludes this warm biography by emphasizing how later mathematicians built upon Germain's work."
--Publishers Weekly

"Masterly... a superb picture book biography."
--The Wall Street Journal

"Refreshingly, Sophie Germain's story not only reminds us of the importance of perseverance, it recalls a time when discoveries were often made by hard-working amateurs--for the fun of it."--The New York Times
* "The artwork...is truly a sight to behold.... A highly recommended choice."
--School Library Journal, starred review

"Bardoe writes with precision and expert pacing.... [And] what McClintock accomplishes here is also a thing of wonder.... It's a remarkable story in an elegantly packaged piece of nonfiction.... Truly inspiring."--Julie Danielson, 7 Impossible Things

"Bardoe and McClintock have...gone into new territory, tried new artistic techniques, and brought to life ideas that until now have never been displayed in this way in a biography for kids.... I love this book."
--Elizabeth Bird, A Fuse #8 Production

* "A compelling biography...a lesson in perseverance.... A highly recommended addition to the growing number of books about women who have made significant contributions to knowledge."
--School Library Connection, starred review
