“Astonishing comics about world-changing women. What could possibly be better?”—NEIL GAIMAN

“Thoughtful, timely and super-engaging.”—JACQUELINE WOODSON

“I wish I’d had Noisemakers when I was growing up.”—ALISON BECHDEL

From the creators of Kazoo magazine, a quarterly magazine for girls ages 5-12, which Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls called “required reading,” comes a graphic novel anthology of women who are not afraid to make some noise!

Did anyone ever get anywhere by being quiet? To change anything, you have to make some noise! From the creators of the award-winning Kazoo magazine comes a look at the lives of 25 extraordinary women through the eyes of 25 extraordinary comic artists. In chapters titled Grow, Tinker, Play, Create, Rally, and Explore, you’ll meet Eugenie Clark, who swam with sharks, Raye Montague, who revolutionized the design process for ships, Hedy Lamarr, a beautiful actress and brilliant inventor, Julia Child, a chef who wasn’t afraid to make mistakes, Kate Warne, the first female detective, who saved the life of President-Elect Abraham Lincoln, and many more.

In 25 distinct styles from some of the most exciting comic artists, Noisemakers makes for great Women’s History Month reading and is perfect for everyone who is not afraid to use their voice and for those who could use a little boost.
