"These deceptively slim volumes convey a tremendous amount of
information and vocabulary, and should attract attention from
reluctant and enthusiastic readers alike."
"I really like your books because they help my lower level readers and ESL kids learn about history and people in a fun, non-intimidating way. I show my colleagues that these books are just like other nonfiction books with glossaries, indexes, Web sites, and bibliographies. I think many are surprised at how comprehensive these books really are!" -- Susan Bontly
