Product description

Review

"Exhilarating―as well as hilarious, enraging, or both at once depending on the reader. "―Kirkus, starred review and a Best Book of 2020

"Wicks and Ottaviani skillfully capture Cleave’s infectious enthusiasm up to the last page." ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

"
Gobs of humor, lively artwork, and tidy explanations of the science make this a standout among the vast field of books about the U.S. space program." ―Booklist, starred review

"Readers will be intrigued and inspired to dive into further research to understand some of the jargon and learn more about the women profiled here... A stellar addition to all collections." ―School Library Journal, starred review

"With plenty of eye-rolling takes on male-designed spacecraft faux pas and enthusiastic crew reveling in flight adventures, Ottaviani and Wicks drive home the message that it’s all about teamwork, and no team can function without diverse members."―The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

About the Author

Jim Ottaviani has written fifteen (and counting) graphic novels about scientists. His most recent books include Naturalist (with E.O. Wilson), Astronauts: Women on the Final Frontier, Hawking, The Imitation Game, a biography of Alan Turing, Primates, about Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Biruté Galdikas; and Feynman, about the Nobel-prize winning physicist, artist, and raconteur. His books are New York Times bestsellers, have been translated into a dozen languages, and have received praise from publications ranging from Nature and Physics World to Entertainment Weekly and Variety.

Jim lives in Michigan and comes to comics via careers in nuclear engineering and librarianship.



Maris Wicks lives in sunny Somerville, Massachusetts. She is the author behind Human Body Theater, as well as the illustrator of New York Times Bestselling Primates, with Jim Ottaviani. Wicks has also created comics for Spongebob Comics, DC and Marvel. When Maris is not drawing comics, she can be found prepping slides for her collection of vintage microscopes.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Jim Ottaviani has worked in news agencies and golf courses in the Chicago area, nuclear reactors in the U.S. and Japan, and libraries in Michigan. He still works as a librarian by day, but stays up late writing comics about scientists. When he's not doing these things, he's spraining his ankles and flattening his feet by running on trails. Or he's reading. He reads a lot. Elsewhere on the web you can find him at www.gt-labs.com .
