Reviews

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Fall

Isabella explores the world while never leaving the backyard. The strong-willed, imaginative little girl transforms from archaeologist in Egypt to artist in France to astronomer in ancient Mexico. The language and pun-heavy interplay between Isabella and her father is lively; the illustrations occasionally stereotype world cultures but they're clever nevertheless. A guide to places and landmarks is appended. Reading list, websites.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2013 Fall

Isabella goes on an imaginative literary spree at the library with her parents. Garish digital illustrations plus varying font styles and colors contribute to an abrasive tone in a narrative intent on superficially sharing a range of classic stories: Peter Pan, Black Beauty, and others. "Stories for all time..." back matter includes plot synopses and information about works referenced. Websites. Bib.

PW Reviews 2016 October #4

The heroine of My Name Is Not Isabella highlights pioneering women in American politics. Once again, Isabella changes her name throughout, instructing her parents to call her Susanna (after Susanna Madora Salter, the first woman mayor), Jeannette (referring to congresswoman Jeannette Rankin), and Sandra (as in Day O'Connor), among other names. The personas let Litwin do some time traveling in his soft-textured digital illustrations as he pictures the purple-haired heroine inhabiting each role; the story concludes with Isabella witnessing the inauguration of a brown-skinned female president. Biographical background about each politico and a timeline of other female firsts round out a light introduction to women's role in U.S. political history. Ages 4–8. Illustrator's agent: Gwen Walters. (Oct.) Copyright 2016 Publishers Weekly.
