Who-Was-Mark-Twain-1

Description

A humorist, narrator, and social observer, Mark Twain is unsurpassed in American literature. Best known as the author of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain, not unlike his protagonist, Huck, had a restless spirit. He found adventure prospecting for silver in Nevada, navigating steamboats down the Mississippi, and making people laugh around the world. But Twain also had a serious streak and decried racism and injustice. His fascinating life is captured candidly in this enjoyable biography.

This is a fantastic series of illustrated biographies for young readers featuring significant historical figures, including artists, scientists, and world leaders. Exposure your kids (and yourself!) to the fascinating universe of nonfiction. Start growing the scaffolding of cultural literacy with these tales of interesting people from history.
