Krull, Kathleen. Lives of.....[series]

Krull, Kathleen. Lives of.....[series] Harcourt.
I don't usually talk about non-fiction books but this series of collective biographies is presented in a very light, entertaining fashion (with cute, yet not silly) illustrations. They are in a larger format (8.5x10.5) and are under 100 pages. Each biography is only 2-3 pages (enough to whet the appetite.) The selection of people is good: some of the usual, and some of ones that are not so familiar. As far as I can tell there are Lives of Presidents, Atheletes, Artists, Writers, Musicians and Women. I have seen the Musicians and Women.
