"A joyful thing to behold. Set in Victorian England, this mystery gleefully overturns sexist norms and celebrates independent women of intellect, with Myrtle Hardcastle leading the charge."
—Booklist, starred review
It's been a busy week around here! The latest news? We are so happy to say that Elizabeth Bluemle has another picture book underway with editor Joan Powers at Candlewick, who has also worked with Elizabeth on My Father the Dog, Dogs on the Bed, and, most recently, How Do You Wokka-Wokka?
The new story, Tap Tap Boom Boom, is a rhythmic verse in vintage Bluemle style, celebrating rain, and in particular, the way a big rainstorm can drive city dwellers together to wait it out, turning strangers into friends.
