Reviewed with Kenneth C. Davis' Don't Know Much about George Washington.
Gr. 3-7. Organized in the author's trademark question-and-answer format, these biographies have sure appeal for reluctant readers. Davis gives just enough historical background to place his subjects in context, and he has selected and phrased his facts with middle-schoolers' interests and sense of humor in mind. washington features amusing line drawings by Rob Shepperson; the artwork in Sitting Bull, which is more serious in tone, includes some rather murky pencil sketches and period photographs. The selected bibliography in Sitting Bull is a mix of adult and children's books; in George Washington youth fiction and nonfiction titles are listed separately, followed by a bibliography of mostly adult books. Both books have a time line; Washington also includes a Web site list. The subjects are familiar, but the treatment is unusual and effective. Catherine Andronik
