I think this book is splendid!!! You really feel like, just for a few minutes, you get to go out for a lovely evening of fine dining, good conversation, and rousing adventure with two dear chums who also happen to be two of the most famous women in American history!!! It's just really warm and cozy but with a dash of daring! ;-> The historical note at the end is great. I wasn't at first sure what I felt about the B&W artwork, but I was charmed by the end. Selznick is pretty darn good as those of you who read "Hugo Cabret" know!

Lisa Vegan I wasn't sure about the illustrations until I got past the cover but then I loved them. Great book! Yes, you captured the magic/fun in your review.

Kathryn Thanks! I, too, was not wild about the cover art but somehow I was just captivated with how they matched the story once I started reading.
