Ms. Hakim braids multiple narratives together to bring alive material long dead to children's imaginations."--The New York Times Book Review "Joy Hakim didn't rewrite history. But she did make it a whole lot more fun to read."--Education Week "Readers young and old will find themselves amused, amazed, and engrossed by this searching, opinionated survey.
