Reviews for Mothers of Invention by Ethlie Ann Vare and Greg Ptacek

"It's a fascinating and gratifying book….It gives us a positive view of women's inventiveness, from the frivolous to the noble."
–The New York Times Book Review

"It is the wide spectrum of female humanity and ability in this book that makes it an especially valuable addition to the growing popular library on the accomplishments and work lives of women."
–Los Angeles Times

"An informative collection of talent, trivia, and history, Mothers of Invention will interest most anyone. More importantly, though, it will serve to inspire girls and women of all ages. For that reason, it belongs on the shelves of schools and public libraries everywhere."
–Tampa Tribune

"Wonderful….A book to be dipped into and sampled at one's leisure."
–The Chicago Biweekly

"This fascinating volume will find a place in the browsing sections of both adult and YA collections…recommended."
–Library Journal

One of the "Best Books for Young Adults,"
American Library Association, 1988
