Reviews

"Impressively diverse."--Booklist "For budding artists, here's a heartening reminder that 17 unconventional greats--not to mention all the rest--started out as children too."--Kirkus Reviews

"Memorably weird childhood moments--Jackson Pollock accidentally had part of a finger chopped off and then eaten by a rooster--are likely to stick with readers, as will Horner's impish cartoons."--Publishers Weekly

"Large type and funny color illustrations make this and other books in this series a hit with kids."--Baltimore Sun "An interesting, attention-holding collection of mini-biographies that any 7-to-14-year-old can enjoy for fun or for a school project."--Cape Cod Times "As an upper elementary school teacher, it's hard to find interesting and well-written non-fiction texts for kids ages 8-12.... That's why I get SO very excited when I discover a non fiction book that is not only interesting and well-written, but perfect for this age group. Kid Artists: True Tales of Childhood From Creative Legends is one of these books."--The Caterpillar Corner

Praise for Kid Presidents:
"Just like history class, only hilarious."--Tim Federle, author of Better Nate Than Ever "With cartoonish illustrations that will attract fans of Jeff Kinney's The Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Rachel Renee Russell's The Dork Diaries, this informative offering leaves no presidential childhood rock unturned."--School Library Journal "Caricatures by Horner are whimsical and funny, a good match for a book that demonstrates that every president started life as a goofy, regular kid."--Booklist Praise for Kid Athletes:
"Outstanding...Inspiring and entertaining, Kid Athletes isn't just for sports fans."--Booklist, starred review "Even if you don't exactly love sports, this book only says a little bit about them in the actual sport, so go out and get this book because it will teach you a lot and you will enjoy it immensely."--Kidsday reporters, Newsday

"Perfect for the adolescent set, these inspiring stories mix fun and non-fiction."--Geeks of Doom Praise for Kid Authors:
"Lively glimpses of formative moments and budding talents."--Kirkus Reviews "A fun and useful addition, especially for aspiring writers and class projects."--School Library Journal, Paige Rowse, Needham High School, MA "This is an ideal gift for aspiring young writers who may need proof that even the most famous authors had to start somewhere."--Shelf Awareness for Readers "[Kid Authors] was full of real information, but the author made it fun and funny ... I would recommend this book for all people who read books and want to know interesting information about authors, and also for people who want to be authors themselves."--Michael, age 93
