Ballot Box Battle

by Emily A McCully


Quick Overview

In Tenafly, New Jersey, in 1880, a young girl named Cordelia isn't interested in hearing her neighbor's stories about the fight for women's suffrage. But on election day, Cordelia prompts Mrs. Stanton to tell the heartwrenching story of her own childhood, and how it steeled her for the battles of her adult life. What happens when Cordelia and Elizabeth Cady Stanton decide to go to the polls is a turning point for Cordelia, and an inspiration to children everywhere. Full color.


It is the fall of 1880, and Cordelia is more interested in horse riding than in hearing her neighbor, Mrs. Stanton talk about her fight for women's suffrage. But on Election Day, Mrs. Stanton tells the heart-wrenching story of her childhood. Charged with the story's message, Cordelia determines to go with Mrs. Stanton to the polls in an attempt to vote--above the jeers and taunts of the male crowd. With faces, landscapes, and action scenes brought to life by McCully's virtuosic illustrations, Cordelia's turning-point experience is sure to inspire today's young girls (and boys) everywhere. Size 0.13" H x 9.9" L x 7.94" W, 32 pages
