"Quigley adeptly creates strong classroom scenes that convey an inclusive student body’s realistic dynamic and an endearing, assured seven-year-old protagonist who appreciates her cultural identity." - PW, starred review
"A book to be read over and over for its intriguing story, illustrations, and captions." —School Library Journal, starred review
I've got a wonderful new deal to share today—a non-fiction picture book that captivated me from the very first moment I read it. WHAT MISS MITCHELL SAW is the exquisitely written account of Maria Mitchell, the first professional female astronomer, who grew up on Cape Cod and made her name by a very important nighttime discovery.
WHAT MISS MITCHELL SAW has been enthusiastically acquired by Andrea Welch at Beach Lane Books, who has also signed on the incredibly talented Diana Sudyka to illustrate.
You'll have to wait a little longer to get your hands on this beauty, as pub date isn't till spring 2019. But ... you know it's gonna be so very worth it!
Huge congrats, Hayley!
