This series about fast-food inventors and entrepreneurs serves up a surprisingly rich informational feast. Each book explores the cultural context of the innovator in question, exploring the rationale for creating the food and exploring why America responded so enthusiastically to it. As a whole, the design is clean, bright, and engaging. Although the subject is fast food, these books are nutritious in quality. Highly recommended for reluctant readers.
