What readers are saying:
"A curious, bespectacled protagonist explores the world around her through the study of living things and the discoveries of women scientists who helped lay the foundations of biology as we know it today. Pioli’s illustrations give these women of science a Disney-princess vibe for broad appeal while vibrant colors bring anatomy and cell structures to life. A welcome primer on biological science in which the contributions of women take center stage."
