Praise For Trudy's Big Swim: How Gertrude Ederle Swam the English Channel and Took the World by Storm…
"Macy's immediate, involving text takes breaks only to supply essential backstory . . . Collins's retro-flavored mixed-media art has a you-are-there, camera-like perspective, zooming in at key points along the way;"—The Horn Book
"The dramatic, full-bleed illustrations combine with the evocative text to humanize the event and the heroine. . . . A valuable addition to picture-book biographies of women who made waves in history."—Kirkus Reviews
