Clearly written and well-organized introductions to notable authors and illustrators. Children will enjoy learning about the childhoods of these creators, and the books have enough information to be enlightening, but not so much as to be overwhelming. “Elements of Art” boxes add interest and visual appeal. These titles will be of use for reports and author/illustrator studies, and their size, length, content, and design will appeal to children who are interested in the people behind the books they enjoy.
