(price-clipped) [tight, attractive copy: book is flawless except for a faint dampstain on the copyright page; rear panel of jacket is rubbed]. Kid-friendly discussions of the lives and works of twenty prominent writers: Murasaki Shikibu, Miguel de Cervantes, William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Hans Christian Andersen, Edgar Allan Poe, Charles Dickens, Charlotte and Emily Brontë, Emily Dickinson, Louisa May Alcott, Mark Twain, Frances Hodgson Burnett, Robert Louis Stevenson, Jack London, Carl Sandburg, E.B. White, Zora Neale Hurston, Langston Hughes, and Isaac Bashevis Singer. Each author is depicted in a full-page, semi-caricature color drawing. If you're a parent (or grandparent) looking to tempt a child away from a media device, this would make the perfect gift. Although you might have to explain to them what it is.
