Who was Grace Hopper? A software tester, workplace
jester, cherished mentor, ace inventor, avid reader,
naval leader—AND rule breaker, chance taker, and
troublemaker. Acclaimed picture book author Laurie
Wallmark (Ada Byron Lovelace and the Thinking Machine)
once again tells the riveting story of a trailblazing
woman. Grace Hopper coined the term “computer bug” and
taught computers to “speak English.” Throughout her life,
Hopper succeeded in doing what no one had ever done
before. Delighting in difficult ideas and in defying
expectations, the insatiably curious Hopper truly was
“Amazing Grace” . . . and a role model for science- and
math-minded girls and boys. With a wealth of witty
quotes, and richly detailed illustrations, this book
brings Hopper's incredible accomplishments to life.
