520    This story of imagination and expression introduces young 
       readers to Gertrude and her life partner, Alice B. Toklas,
       who lived in Paris during a fascinating time in history. 
       Divided into short chapters that chronicle different 
       episodes in Gertrude and Alice's life, this book 
       celebrates two women who were full of daring and 
       creativity at a time when women were encouraged to be 
       wives, not writers. Author Evie Robillard's playful second
       -person free verse and illustrator Rachel Katstaller's 
       charmingly detailed art beautifully capture the lively 
       world of early 20th-century Paris. Young readers will 
       learn about how Gertrude made up her own writing rules. 
       They'll even learn how sitting around "doing nothing, 
       really doing nothing" is a very important part of being a 
       genius! Gertrude's ingenuity and the childlike joy she 
       found in words and ideas are showcased by the inclusion of
       quotations from her work. Backmatter includes a timeline, 
       resources and an author's note for further learning.
