“In Alice Guy-Blaché, Rockliff finds that holy grail of picture book biographies—a well-documented life of a fascinating woman who has been overlooked.” –Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Ciraolo cleverly folds early movie elements into her illustrations: title cards introduce the different chapters of Alice’s life; sequenced frames resemble movie stills; and the light from a projector cuts through an inkblack page. Film history rolls alongside Alice’s career, moving from silent pictures to “talkies” to the rise of Hollywood, which ultimately shuttered Alice’s own New York studio. Young readers will (..) undoubtedly be inspired by her moxie.” -Booklist
