Editorial Reviews

Review

"Caroline Paul’s inspiring and sometimes astonishing stories of the adventures that she and other great women have undertaken, alongside Wendy MacNaughton’s beautiful illustrations, make The Gutsy Girl the book of the year for daredevils, doers, and dreamers of all ages." ―Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild

"The perfect book for young feminists, or really any woman who needs a dose of inspiration in her life . . . Viva la Gutsy Girl!" ―Buzzfeed

"Part high-energy how-to guide, part hilarious memoir, and part interactive adventure journal designed to help girls of all ages build confidence, pluck, and bravery by venturing outside." ―Outside Magazine

"Paul encourages readers--girls, specifically--to pursue lives of excitement in a book that blends elements of memoir, guidebook, and journal." ―Publishers Weekly

"Delightful . . . There’s a lot here that will thrill any girl--or boy--of any age." San Francisco Chronicle

"If Pippi Longstocking and Sheryl Sandberg got together and penned a book for tween girls, this brilliantly written and illustrated gem would be it." ―Parent.co

"An incredible book for raising ‘gutsy’ girls and a must-read for adventurous women . . . Paul’s book will convince any woman that she, too, is destined for a life of epic adventure--whether it’s in the woods or in the boardroom." ―Quartz.com

"A must for inspiring girls of all ages--young and young at heart." ―Stanford Magazine

"Paul's exuberant prose is made even better by Wendy MacNaughton's charming illustrations, which help place us in the adrenaline-fueled scenes . . . An adventure tome, field manual, journal, and self-help book all in one, Gutsy makes an excellent gift for girls graduating elementary school, though it's a good read for anyone. The book aims to help young women widen their comfort zone, face fear, and manage insecurity." - Sierra

“[Lost Cat] is revelatory . . . it moves easily and hilariously from one sentence and chapter to the next . . . it's ingeniously crafted . . . a fiercely charming narrative that sneaks up on a reader, just as the best fantastical books do . . . Lost Cat is an incredibly endearing work, a snapshot of the madness of loving and agonizing over and chasing after animals.” ―Jillian Steinhauer, The Los Angeles Review of Books, on LOST CAT

“An uncommonly charming and wise tale.” ―Alexis Madrigal, The Atlantic, on LOST CAT

“This playful, quirky book is like a cat that climbs into your lap and purrs; it's impossible not to love it.” ―Gayle Brandeis, San Francisco Chronicle, on LOST CAT

“A tender, imaginative memoir infused with equal parts humor and humanity . . . an absolute treat from cover to cover.” ―Maria Popova, Brain Pickings, on LOST CAT
