I was drawn to the lovely cover of Marvelous Mattie immediately. Sitting there on the library display, it called to me. I checked it out. I read. I learned something!
I had never heard of Marvelous Mattie Knight. Do you know who she is?
The real story here is not just that she was a female inventor in a time when no one thought it possible--the real story is that she believed in her inventions AND in her right to own it, woman or not!
