Amelia Earhart (The First Names Series) (Hardcover)
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. - Reveiw by Maureen— From Staff Picks by Maureen
About the Author
"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."

The Nightrunner series has quickly become my new favorite fantasy series. Flewelling has created a full and interesting fantasy world that brings freshness to many classic tropes of the genre. Luck in the Shadows shines when it comes to characters. Flewelling knows how to let a character grow naturally and come to life in her stories. Any lover of high fantasy age 16 and up should make this a part of their collection. - Pete
