Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Shirin Yim Bridges’ first book, Ruby's Wish, was a Publishers Weekly Best Children’s Book and won the Ezra Jack Keats award. It is on several state reading lists, has been translated into seven languages, and is now in its eleventh edition. The Umbrella Queen made TIME/CNN’s Top 10 Lists and was also named a Best Children’s Book by the Bank Street College of Education. Horrible Hauntings won an IRA/CBC Children's Choices Award. Mary Wrightly So Politely launched in April 2013 to starred reviews in both Kirkus and Publishers Weekly. To date, every book that Shirin has written or published has achieved national acclaim.

Peter Malone has illustrated over twenty children’s books for such publishers as Chronicle, Knopf, Putnam, Running Press, and Scholastic. In addition to creating gorgeous illustrations, he wrote the book, Close to the Wind, about the use of the Beaufort scale for measuring wind force at sea. School Library Journal called it “informative and utterly charming.” He lives in Bath, England, with his wife, a restorer of paintings, and their two grown daughters.

Format: Hardcover
Clearly, Ms. Bridges feels it is time to give girls heroines of their own, not Disney characters, but real women--and not just good women. Agrippina was no angel, but in the context of the time she lived--15 to 59 AD--she was extraordinarily powerful. She was accused of murdering and marrying her way to the throne, but did she? I think what I like most about the Dastardly Dames series, is a guilty or innocent verdict is left to the reader. Ms. Bridges creates tasty historical hors d'oeuvres, which leave me wanting more.
