Description

Discover the famous and the infamous in this updated and expanded edition of The Oxford Children's Book of Famous People. This comprehensive, fully illustrated book tells the stories of over 1,000 women and men--politicians and statesmen, religious leaders, scientists, explorers, philosophers, artists, musicians, sports heroes and many more--who have shaped our world. Ancient rulers share the same page as 20th-century movie stars, giving an unusual but highly entertaining perspective on the range of people who have left their mark on our lives. The articles in this A-to-Z encyclopedia capture the essential facts about each person's life and major achievements. The information has been fully updated, and new biographies have been added. Thematic and chronological indices link people in time and by area of achievement.show more
