Wonderful words for A Race Around the World: The True Story of Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland from the Seattle Book Review:
Author Caroline Starr Rose has written a fun and fascinating story of this amazing true event that will have youngsters enthralled waiting to see which of these women can pull off this amazing feat. The writing is crisp and the story is well paced. Illustrator Alexandra Bye captures the sense of the time and places in the story perfectly with plenty of excellent details. This is a winner.
Nellie and Elizabeth also made A Mighty Girl’s 2019 Books of the Year list as well as the Christian Science Monitor’s Best Children’s Books of 2019. I’m hopeful, through these accolades, more readers will learn of Bly and Bisland’s incredible adventure!
