Review by Horn Book Review

These accessible but dry biographies provide introductory overviews of the lives and works of popular children's authors. Many stock photos are included; some are confusingly captioned, others are filler (such as the scuba divers in Paolini and the fighter jet in Park). There are some interesting facts, but a tighter structure and lists of the authors' works would have helped organize the information. Glos., ind. [Review covers these Checkerboard Biography Library: Children's Authors titles: Barbara Park, Christopher Paolini, Lemony Snicket, Margaret Wise Brown, Mary Pope Osborne, and Roald Dahl.] (c) Copyright 2010.
