Review quote

"Highlighting dramatic moments and adventurous deeds as well as clarifying the cultural context of each story, Alan Marks expressive line drawings with watercolor washes add greatly to the books' appeal. Because the writing does not talk down to young readers, the books would also serve slightly older students looking for brief biographical accounts of individuals."--Booklist"Langley paints his subject with a broad brush in this easy-to-read biography."--School Library Journalshow more
