The Lovereading4Kids comment

Find out all you can about a range of famous people from kings and queens to inventors, musicians and sports stars. Wide ranging historically and geographically in its scope, this book is easy to use as a reference book and is also fun just to dip into or browse through. Many of the characters are brought to life through the use of great photographs.
