Staff Reviews


Very accessible biography for the slightly older student beyond the Who Was...? series. Loved the illustrations, the smart page design and the STEAM aspect of this readable series.

**STARRED REVIEW**
"In line with the series premise and overall informal tone, the author refers to him throughout as "Harry" (his stage name). Andrew Prentice does likewise for his free-spirited subject in the co-published Amelia Earhart (illustrated by Mike Smith), taking "Amelia" (or, in childhood chapters, "Millie") from homemade backyard roller coaster to final disappearance . . . Together with its companion, stimulating portraits of two colorful, driven historical figures."

— Kirkus Reviews

"A lighthearted and easy look at some of the world’s most famous celebrities . . . The illustrations may prove to be comforting for fiction readers who enjoy diary style series like Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Rachel Renée Russell’s Dork Diaries."
