"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 9

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 Artists:
"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

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
