About the Author:

Suzanne Slade is the author of 90 books for children including Basketball, How it Works for Sports Illustrated for Kids.  She holds a Mechanical Engineering degree and worked on rockets and cars before becoming a full-time children's writer. Her titles have been recognized by the Junior Library Guild, Paterson Prize Books for Young People, Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People, and the California Reading Association. When she's not writing, Suzanne enjoys rollerblading, walking her dog, or shooting hoops in the driveway with her children.

From Booklist:

In simple sentences (though not always simple words), Slade briskly moves through Anthony's life, beginning with her Quaker upbringing, her stint as a teacher, her life as an advocate for temperance and abolition, and her revolutionary fight for women's right to vote. Sweeping double-page spreads usually focus on Anthony's public and personal lives, but there is one dramatic spread showing slaves and soldiers marching under a golden sky with a petition for abolition in the foreground. Surprisingly, one of the more potent moments in Anthony's life—her arrest while attempting to vote—is only discussed in an appendix of short facts called Did You Know? Like other entries in the Biographies series, this volume extends the text with a glossary, short bibliography of children's books, and access to safe Web sites through a link called Facthound. Cooper, Ilene
