Summary

Included in Smithsonian Magazine's Ten Best Children’s Books of 2022

In this real-life adventure, daredevil and groundbreaking journalists Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland race against each other–and the clock–as they circle the globe by ship, train, and foot. Join these two stereotype-shattering reporters as they prove that not only is traveling around the world possible, but that women are just as curious, capable, and courageous as any man.


Nellie Bly was an energetic and eager reporter, but she wasn't able to think of a good story for her editors. Wishing she was on the other end of the earth, Nellie had an inspiration–she would travel around the world, just like in the fictional adventure book Around the World in Eighty Days. When a fellow journalist, Elizabeth Bisland, heard about Nellie's plans, she decided to up the stakes–by beating Nellie in her own race! 
 
This exciting American history story about two pioneering women who paved the way for equality will inspire young readers.
 
The perfect choice for parents and teachers looking for:
Books for kids ages 7 - 10 about women's history
Feminist picture books about historical women, and daring books for girls
