"Biographical highlights and sidelights from a dozen, mostly veteran, nonfiction authors.Originally posted on the Nonfiction Minute blog, these short essays focus less on biographical details than on why their subjects are worth knowing.....Hellegouarch fills gaps in the array of period photos, documents, and art with mildly dramatic watercolor scenes, and each entry ends with a few leads to further information (often one of the writer's own works). Brisk and appealing historical vignettes, as readable as they are revealing." * Kirkus Reviews *
"The 30 people profiled in this handsomely produced nonfiction book are certainly interesting and mostly exemplary. The compendium contains someone to interest everyone, including contemporary role models (Malala Yousafzal), artists of color (Edmonia Lewis and Juan de Pareja), and explorers (Roald Amundsen and Robert Scott). Authors, scientists, and civil rights icons are all represented....Photos, maps, art reproductions, and even graphs keep the layout lively. The authors...clearly know how to sum up their subjects in three-to-five pages while whetting young readers' appetites. This is a good jumping-off platform to longer similar essays..." * Booklist *
"This is a great resource for a struggling reader or for someone who is not sure who they may want to learn more about. Recommended" * School Library Connection *
