It was with real anticipation that I cracked open my copy of Monica Kulling's and David Parkins' newest book In the Bag Margaret Knight Wraps It Up As the illustrator of Monica's two previous books in Tundra's Great Idea Series I was curious to see where this pairing of talents had taken thingsMy expectations were certainly well rewarded Monica's crisp prose and snappy dialogue tell the tale of Margaret Knight Victorian inventor Through what can only be described as literary non fiction for the very young Monica introduces us to the life of this remarkable woman starting with her as a young girl working in a factory and touching on a few key moments in her lifetime of inventing She builds towards the dramatic moment when Margaret Knight asserts herself as a bona fide inventor at a time when inventing was not seen as a proper pursuit for a woman As in her previous book in the series All Aboard Elijah McCoy's Steam Engine Kulling's unlikely hero's success is not so much her invention the paper bag as her ability to rise above the s of the time and succeed in a world where the odds are stacked against her Knight's determination entrepreneurism and sheer verve carry her through to success and serve as a beacon of inspiration for any young reader who desires to leave their mark on this worldDavid Parkins' masterful illustrations in pen and ink and watercolour bring Margaret Knight's story to life As a huge fan of his work I was not surprised to see that he tackled the subject matter with authority and humour bringing a wealth of Victorian era minutiae to each and every page with drawings that are deceptively clean and straight forward yet represent a mastery of his craft that few illustrators can emulateA terrific book in content writing and illustration In the Bag will be a real boon to any classroom or fledgeling inventor's bookshelf
