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.
