real life stories of amazing people

David Adler's picture book biographies are always wonderful introductions for young readers. This is no exception as readers will learn about the life of Harry Houdini.

Muslims helped rescue Jews during the Holocaust by using one of their mosques as a way station of sorts. This little known story is brought to life by the somber yet hopeful illustrations.

Harriet Quimby became the first female licensed pilot in the US. This picture book tells of her challenges as she pursued her goals. Illustrations by Catherine Stock accentuate the sometimes hectic world in which Harriet lived and worked.
