My Name Is Not Isabella Hits The New York Times Bestsellers List!
Every once in a while in the life of a publisher, something truly life-changing will come along, something that ignites your passion and makes you want to tell everyone you’ve ever met about a book. For us, My Name Is Not Isabella is one of those rare, precious books.
At first glance, this is a beautiful and engaging picture book, but it is really much more. It uses a little girl’s imagination to draw young readers a picture of what possibilities exist for girls (as they discover through some of the most fascinating personalities of recent history) and delivers an inspiring message to young girls about following their dreams and finding positive female role models.
My Name Is Not Isabella marks the 15th title by Sourcebooks to appear on the list, and the fourth for our children’s imprint, Sourcebooks Jabberwocky. The book will be listed as #10 in the New York Times Book Review Children's Picture Book bestseller list to be published in the January 9 edition of the newspaper (please note that children's book bestsellers appear only online, except once a month).
