A brilliant portrait of two American heroes from the award-winning creators of The Extraordinary Mark Twain (According to Susy)! J...ohn Adams and Thomas Jefferson were very different. John Adams was short and stout. Thomas Jefferson was tall and lean. John was argumentative and blunt. Tom was soft-spoken and polite. John sometimes got along with almost no one. Tom got along with just about everyone. But these two very different gentlemen did have two things in common: They both cared deeply about the American colonies, and neither cared much for the British tyrant, King George. With their signature wit, impeccable research, and inventive presentation style, award winners Barbara Kerley and Edwin Fotheringham masterfully blend biography and history to create a brilliant portrait of two American heroes who bravely set aside their differences to join forces in the fight for our country?s freedom.

A harmonious introduction to one of our countrys most important singers--as envisioned by two of our industrys most important voic...es. Wide trade and institutional appeal. Marian Anderson is best known for her historic concert at the Lincoln Memorial in 1939, which drew an integrated crowd of 75,000 people in pre-Civil Rights America. While this momentous event showcased the uniqueness of her voice, the strength of her character, and the struggles of the times in which she lived, it is only part of her story. Like the operatic arias Marian would come to sing, Ryans text is as moving as a libretto, and Selznicks pictures as exquisitely detailed and elaborately designed as a stage set. What emerges most profoundly from their shared vision is a role model of courage.

From the Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor-winning team behind WHAT TO DO ABOUT ALICE?, a humorous and intimate portrait of the most ce...lebrated writer in America, as told by his thirteen-year-old daughter. Susy Clemens thought the world was wrong about her papa. They saw Mark Twain as a humorist joking at everything. But he was so much more, and Susy was determined to set the record straight. In a journal she kept under her pillow, Susy documented her world-famous father-from his habits (good and bad!) to his writing routine to their familys colorful home life. Her frank, funny, tender biography (which came to be one of Twains most prized possessions) gives rare insight and an unforgettable perspective on an American icon. Inserts with excerpts from Susys actual journal give added appeal.
