Amelia Earhart, top aviator. You might know that her flight accomplishments were heralded across the globe. But what about the story of her teeth, which were so perfect that her dentist wanted to remove all of them to show his other patients? Or her refusal to read chapter nine in any book? You’re about to be treated to the Lieographical aspects of Amelia Earhart’s life, in this funny, lighthearted, “all that didn’t happen” take on this larger than life woman.
The book ends with a short—but true—account of Amelia’s life—just enough to encourage kids to find out more on this important historical figure. But even if readers have already learned about Amelia, the wacky stories in this tall-tales book will be even more enjoyable.
“Alan Katz’s Lieographies series is sure to provide a lot of laughs for young readers, while introducing them to very important historical figures and encouraging them to find out more. Reading, laughing, and learning—what’s better than that?”
—Marc Summers, Host and Executive Producer of Nickelodeon’s Double Dare
