Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of True Stories, Real People from Horn Book Guide on October 1, 2016

Cover: Abby Sunderland: Alone on the Indian Ocean

True Stories, Real People series. Each short, inspiring biography is divided into four or five chapters written in an objective, unpretentious manner. Quotation sources are fastidiously footnoted and listed in the back matter. Navigation is easy thanks to clean layouts and a simple color scheme (orange photo captions, navy call-out boxes). Great for school assignments and engaging enough for pleasure reading. Reading list. Glos., ind.
