Lucy! is a buoyant picture book biography of trailblazer Lucille Ball, the comedy queen who loved to make the world laugh, from authors Amy Guglielmo and Jacqueline Tourville and bestselling illustrator Brigette Barrager.

Lucy was not a proper little girl. She was sassy. She was bold. She was funny. She was a rule-breaking, chance-taking, comedy pioneer.

Can’t act? Can’t sing? Can’t dance? Lucy proves them all wrong—and then has the last laugh when she finally lets her inner funny girl shine. In 1951, the hit show I Love Lucy took television by storm, and has made millions laugh ever since.

Lucy! is the true story of how Lucille Ball overcame the odds to become the world’s Queen of Comedy.


"A tribute to a groundbreaking comic actor...Barrager’s neutral-toned, 1950s-style illustrations culminate in montages of riotous highlights from the show."


"Lucy’s legacy as a loud, audacious woman with a passion for comedy is well served here."

—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
