"Each poem and illustration shines with a personality all its own." --Shelf Awareness (starred review)

"This book has definitely made an impact on my life." --Kitt Shapiro, daughter of Eartha Kitt

Fresh, accessible, and inspiring, Shaking Things Up introduces fourteen revolutionary young women--each paired with a noteworthy female artist--to the next generation of activists, trail-blazers, and rabble-rousers.

From the award-winning author of Ada's Violin, Susan Hood, this is a poetic and visual celebration of persistent women throughout history.

In this book of poems, you will find Mary Anning, who was just thirteen when she unearthed a prehistoric fossil. You'll meet Ruby Bridges, the brave six year old who helped end segregation in the South. And Maya Lin, who at twenty-one won a competition to create a war memorial, and then had to appear before Congress to defend her right to create.

And those are just a few of the young women included in this book. Readers will also hear about Molly Williams, Annette Kellerman, Nellie Bly, Pura Belpré, Frida Kahlo, Jacqueline and Eileen Nearne, Frances Moore Lappé, Mae Jemison, Angela Zhang, and Malala Yousafzai--all whose stories will enthrall and inspire. This poetry collection was written, illustrated, edited, and designed by women and includes an author's note, a timeline, and additional resources.

With artwork by notable artists including Selina Alko, Sophie Blackall, Lisa Brown, Hadley Hooper, Emily Winfield Martin, Oge Mora, Julie Morstad, Sara Palacios, LeUyen Pham, Erin Robinson, Isabel Roxas, Shadra Strickland, and Melissa Sweet.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Shake things up is exactly what these 13 girls and women did. Among those introduced in Hood's poems are well-known names Malala Yousafzai, Ruby Bridges, and Maya Lin and others who have flown under the radar, like Molly Williams, an eighteenth-century firefighter; Jacqueline and Eileen Nearne, WWII spies; and Angela Zhang, a medical scientist, who at 17 was already doing cancer research. The poems take different forms. Mary Anning, a paleontologist, is discussed in a fossil-shaped poem; the many aspects of Pura Belpré are delivered in an abece poem where each sentence begins with a succeeding letter of the alphabet; and so forth. Each subject gets a two-page spread with the poem, a brief factual note, and pictures by different illustrators. Sophie Blackall does a particularly good job with Jacqueline Nearne, depicting her as she floats into France in her parachute. Though they can vary in quality, the different artistic styles and the variety of poetry are sure to keep readers' interest. Solid matches for these extraordinary lives.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Selina Alko, Sophie Blackall, and LeUyen Pham are among 13 woman illustrators whose artwork accompanies Hood's biographical tributes to trailblazing women, several of whom are far from household names. Multistanza poems do a fine job of encapsulating each woman's life, and they're bolstered by quotations, supplementary paragraphs, a timeline, and back matter. "Buried Treasure," about paleontologist Mary Anning, is a concrete poem that takes the shape of her discovery: an ichthyosaur (the phrase "fabulous flippers" forms one flipper). Swimmer Annette Kellerman, who modernized women's swimwear, is joined by a mermaid in Emily Winfield Martin's images ("Who can swim fifty laps/ wearing corsets and caps?" she protests after being arrested for swimming without pantaloons). These encouraging profiles of astronauts, artists, and activists both honor past accomplishments and point toward ways young readers themselves might change the world, too. Ages 4-8.
