What Reviewers Said

“Fabulous reading, great for research, deliciously and  subversively feminist, this will sit happily on the shelf with the presidents, artists, musicians, and others this duo has covered so well…. Krull packs an astonishing amount of information in three to five pages of biography for these [20] female rulers… Hewitt’s illustrations remain dazzling.”
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“As with other titles in this nicely thought-out series… a captivating browsers' delight and a jumping-off point for report writers.”
--School Library Journal

Book of the Month Club selection

... “What sets this book apart from other attempts to redress the balance of male vs. female contributions to world history is style. A fresh-- slightly cheeky, yet ultimately respectful-- tone describes these fascinating folks…. Kids will think all of this is cool….Although every female leader may not be an ideal role model for our youth, at least this supplies a few more honest, detailed portraits of candidates to consider in the first place. The result is a wonderful, all-too-brief book.” 

“Enthusiastically recommended for school and community library collections.” 
 --Midwest Book Review

"They have done it again. . . .Delightful and highly informative."
--The New York Times Book Review

"In writing about Elizabeth I and her artful ability to elude marriage, Krull remarks, 'She was always deliciously in control.' The same accolade might be given to Krull: with [Kathryn Hewitt] her trusted artist companion of the five previous 'Lives' books...Krull shows herself in command of her material, and having a confection of a time."
--The Horn Book Magazine
