"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."

"An important, positive conservation message, and a perfect nonfiction addition to preschool story time or a beginning informational picture book collection." - SLJ, starred review
We’ve been doing a lot of packaging projects with Catbird Agency’s fantastic illustrators, and I’m so pleased at how this one played out! Jean Reidy and Joey Chou, who worked on THE SNOW IS DEEPER THAN MY BOOTS ARE HIGH and the forthcoming GROUP HUG together, are being reunited with WHAT WOULD YOU DO IN A BOOK ABOUT YOU? Harper snagged it and two additional books in an exciting auction earlier this year, and they are so eager, they’re planning to publish this in spring 2021! And esteemed editor Antonia Markiet is helming, with Megan Ilnitzki assisting, to make this whole thing even more outstanding.
Can’t WAIT to see this one on shelves! Congratulations, Jean!
