Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Nellie Bly made her name as a reporter at a time when few newspapers would hire a woman. She asked bold questions and wrote important, exciting stories. Bly is best known for her 1889 thrilling race to be the first to travel around the world faster than anyone ever had. That feat made her the most famous woman in the world. This is a great biography aimed at the middle to upper elementary grades. The reader of this book can learn a great deal about early newspapers. Its large print gives just enough information on each page, leaving room for illustrations, photographs, and a few items from newspapers and flyers. There is a time line, "The Nellie Bly Guessing Match," further reading, websites, a select bibliography and an index included. A well-illustrated and colorful front cover will attract readers. There is a little synopsis on the back cover and a listing of the History Maker Bios which includes all kinds of famous persons and will help a middle reader find another biography for pleasure and/or for assigned reading. 2006, Learner Publications Company, Ages 8 to 12.
