Editorial Reviews

A very enjoyable read about a woman whose humour, political savvy and inspiring athleticism should be known to students of all ages.

— CM Magazine

An excellent choice and would be inspirational for both young men and women whether they are athletes or not.

— Lane Education Service District Review Journal

It is short, easy to read, but more importantly, is worth the time.

— Community (Lousiville, KY)

Dublin's laudatory text and many photographs will also help to keep the memory of this exceptional athlete alive.

— Globe and Mail

This reads as much as a social history of Ontario as biography, with Rosenfeld—woman, Jew and athlete—as a rallying point.

— Toronto Star

Dublin not only tells the story of Bobbie Rosenfeld but provides an impressive history of Canadian women’s sports.

— Association of Jewish Libraries

In chronicling Rosenfeld’s life for today’s children, Dublin employs a tone and language which makes her story timeless.

— Canadian Bookseller

Dublin provides a wealth of contextual detail about Canada and women in the early twentieth century.

— Canadian Ethnic Studies

This book can be read by children nine and up, but will also be enjoyed by adult fans of sports, history, and biography.

— Quill & Quire
