    1. I give this a 3.5 If you know me, I list the V.I Warshawski mystery series by Sara Paretsky as one of my favorite books In fact on friend requests when people ask which fictional character would you most want to meet, I often answer V.I A brash female private investigator from Chicago who happens to love the Cubs , Vic is one tough detective Long before Sara Paretsky dreamed up V.I as her alter ego, Kate Warne became the nation s first female detective for the Pinkerton Agency She was hired in 1 [...]

    2. Picture book nonfiction is a rather unique genre in that it tries to tell rather complicated stories in as simplified a form as possible And while I ve read some great picture book nonfiction, there are occasion problems with text conveying things that aren t quite accurate And there is a bit of that here The author is focused on Kate Warne and the remarkable things she did as a female detective for Allan Pinkerton s detective agency So it makes sense that the other people who helped ferret out [...]

    3. I wanted so much from this the illustrations were too twee, the facts were sparse but that is not necessarily the author s fault, as not much is known about Warne s life , and the story not fully fleshed out.

    6. A fun book that highlights a real woman s successful career, the book struggled a little with clearly sharing the story I would have liked to see the story from Kate s point of view, or maybe just a story about Pinkerton detectives it was a little hard for me and my 7 year old to get really invested in this story because it s still a tad clunky in the way the information is shared Nevertheless, the story at its core is inspiring and a fun read, particularly for upper elementary readers.

    9. Kate Warne presented herself at Allan Pinkerton s detective agency in 1865, asking for work She made the case to Pinkerton that women were skilled in obtaining secret information, because Men liked to brag about their adventures and women encouraged them to talk by pretending to be impressed Also, Women, she said, couldworm out secrets in places where male detectives couldn t go Pinkerton hired her and Kate went on to use disguises and her position as a woman to infiltrate the inner circles of [...]

    16. Interesting slice of American history that most people probably no nothing about Unfortunately, the tone of the narrative felt a bit dry and clinical.

    17. As a teacher, reading specialist, and mother, I ve read MANY picture books I usually don t bother to review them here but this one was exceptional This is the best children s biography I ve read in a long time The story of Kate Warne is riveting and the illustrations are beautiful My daughter and I enjoyed sharing this book and learning together.

    18. Meh I wanted And the illustrations while awash with lovely textures reminded me of a Japanese cartoon or something.

    19. This is an interesting story but it wasn t constructed very well and the illustrations are a silly style.

    20. Kate Warne was one of the first women detectives and became a Pinkerton Detective who helped to save Lincoln as he journeyed to Washington, D.C to become President.

    21. I m sad there s not a full length novel about this woman She was the first Pinkerton agent That is too cool Glad this book exists.
