"A very welcome addition to The Questioneers series (which launched
Rosie Revere, Ada Twist and Iggy Peck) stars a Mexican-American
girl in an inspirational story about standing up for what you
believe in." -- The Bookseller
"Partly a response to the political climate in the US, the book shows Sofia, a child of immigrants, overcoming obstacles becoming a great leader. The series excels in presenting relatable children who often fail before succeeding, rather than fully formed heroes." -- The Observer
"With the help of friends and neighbours, Sofia proves that everyone has the power to change their world. It's another uplifting and positive story in the thoroughly excellent The Questioneers series, and go-getter Sofia is a wonderful role-model for us all." -- Andrea Reece, Love Reading 4 Kids
"A hugely inspirational book that shows even the tiniest voice can get behind a mighty cause and make a difference!" -- Read it, Daddy!
"It's stirring stuff and brings to light that politics isn't separate from us but it's how we live our lives which is an important message for everyone. We love it!" -- Toppsta reviewer
"I like how she stands up for her rights. The book makes me think about how I can be a better citizen and about how I can make choices that will help my town and my school." -- Toppsta reviewer
"A great book for 5 to 10 year olds, it has a great message that anything is possible if you believe in yourself and aim high." -- Toppsta reviewer
"This newest release is a delight and captures the magic of what it is like to be little and to imagine and to create." -- BookBairn
"Andrea Beaty's brilliant rhyming text tells Sofia's story flawlessly, and David Roberts' characters and imagery are completely stunning. The pages showing the detail of the landfill alone will keep readers glued to the page, but it's the brilliance of Roberts' diversity of characters that leap out at you. Every one of the townspeople are unique, and Sofia's Abuelo (grandpa) is a delightful creation, with his tasselled suede jacket and CND cap. Just perfect." -- The BookTrust
"We love the 'Ada Twist, Scientist' and 'Rosie Revere, Engineer' books so much, we were thrilled to see this latest empowering and inspirational offering." -- The Sunday Post
