Coleen is a young girl who can't seem to stop asking questions. Out they come: pop pop pop. She asks them to her brother, her mom, her dad, her doctor, the mayor-to anyone who might know the answer. Sometimes people tire of Coleen's questioning. Until one day, when Coleen thinks she could find some important answers of her own.Arlie Hochschild is Professor Emerita of Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley, where her internationally acclaimed scholarship focuses on gender, the family, labour, emotion and politics. Among her books are The Second Shift, The Time Bind and in 2016, Strangers in Their Own Land. Arlie wrote Coleen the Question Girl when her first son was three. It was one of the first titles published by the Feminist Press in 1974.This edition of Coleen the Question Girl, back in print after four decades, is published by Invisible Spaces of Parenthood (artists Kim Dhillon and Andrea Francke), with new illustrations by Rhiannon Williams.

Coleen was born with a question in her mouth. She wondered whether her dog Thumper could laugh. She wondered why zebras weren't plaid, and whether porpoises could play the piano if only they had hands. She wondered too why some people lived in shacks and other people lived in grand houses and what the polar bears will do if the polar ice melts. Her parents worried that Coleen asked too many questions. But one day, question asking began to spread all over town, and very surprising things began to happen. Coleen was first published by the Feminist Press in l974 when Arlie Hochschild, sociologist and author, was the mother of a three year old. In 2016 it was rewritten, newly illustrated by Rhiannon Williams and republished by Invisible Spaces of Parenthood.
