Summary
"If you've got a good idea, and you know it's going to work, go ahead and do it."
The inspiring story of Grace Hopper--the boundary-breaking woman who revolutionized computer science--is told told in an engaging picture book biography.

Who was Grace Hopper? A software tester, workplace jester, cherished mentor, ace inventor, avid reader, naval leader-- AND rule breaker, chance taker, and troublemaker. Acclaimed picture book author Laurie Wallmark ( Ada Byron Lovelace and the Thinking Machine ) once again tells the riveting story of a trailblazing woman. Grace Hopper coined the term "computer bug" and taught computers to "speak English." Throughout her life, Hopper succeeded in doing what no one had ever done before. Delighting in difficult ideas and in defying expectations, the insatiably curious Hopper truly was "Amazing Grace" . . . and a role model for science- and math-minded girls and boys. With a wealth of witty quotes, and richly detailed illustrations, this book brings Hopper's incredible accomplishments to life.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Wallmark, who wrote Ada Byron Lovelace and the Thinking Machine (2015), now introduces a twentieth-century woman who contributed significantly to the history of computer programming. Grace Hopper grew up in a family that encouraged her childhood interests in math, science, and tinkering. Working for the U. S. Navy for many years, beginning during WWII, she was known for her intelligence, outside-the-box thinking, and sense of humor. Her most notable achievement was the creation of the first compiler, making it possible to use a word-based program that increased efficiency and led to other computer languages. It's hard to say what primary-grade kids will make of Hopper's technological accomplishments, but this picture book goes a long way toward showing that she was a lively, curious, diligent person who developed original ideas and knew how to get things done. Well-chosen anecdotes and quotes offer a sense of her personality, while Wu's digital illustrations feature rich colors, strong structure, and unexpected but accurate details, such as the Jolly Roger flag above Hopper's desk. An inviting picture-book biography.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In an upbeat biography, Wallmark (Ada Byron Lovelace and the Thinking Machine) introduces readers to self-assured tech pioneer Grace Hopper. From the time Hopper was a girl, she "wanted to understand how things worked so she could make them better." After becoming an engineer for the Navy and being assigned to work as a computer programmer, Hopper developed a new (and time-saving) method of writing code. Newcomer Wu's digital illustrations are rendered in a vivid and appealing cartoon style that harmonizes with Wallmark's enthusiastic writing, which emphasizes how Hopper's accomplishments arose as much from her intuition as her number sense. Quotes from Hopper, scattered throughout, further amplify the personality and drive of a trailblazing programmer. Ages 5-up. Author's agent: Liza Fleissig, Liza Royce Agency.
