«This entertaining picture-book biography chronicles her life from childhood through school and apprenticeships, marriage, the war, and the rest of her illustrious career. . . . This enjoyable tale works equally well as a read-aloud and a strong addition to Women in STEM collections.»


«Rockliff’s text flows with breezy excitement over the technical development and with a wry humor directed at the male engineering community, a style ably supported by the visual nudging and teasing of Duncan’s digital artwork.»

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

«This engaging and inspiring read owes a lot of its appeal to Duncan’s charming illustrations, featuring a determined, likable heroine. Author Rockliff has created a book that is simple enough for kindergarteners to enjoy while still being interesting for third and fourth graders—no easy feat. . . . A delightful and welcome addition to STEM collections everywhere.»

School Library Journal

«This accessible, tongue-in-cheek depiction of Shilling’s life and achievements hits all the right notes and shows a woman flourishing in STEM, the importance of powering through adversity, ways in which science and curiosity can be applied, as well as how women have supported each other to learn and succeed. Duncan’s fine-lined illustrations include characters of color among the largely White cast of background characters. . . . An appealing biography that will inspire young scientists and those who may quietly rebel against the status quo.»
