About the Author:

Elizabeth Levy was born on April 4, 1942, in Buffalo, N.Y. She earned a B.A. (magna cum laude) from Brown University, and a M.A.T. from Columbia University. Before writing full-time, she worked as an editor and researcher in a news department at American Broadcasting Co. and was an assistant editor at a publishing company. Her books cover a wide range of reading levels and subject matter. While Levy obviously writes her books to instruct children, she also says she writes on subjects in which she is greatly interested. Levy is a member of the Authors Guild, Authors League of America, Writers of America, and PEN.

Joan Holub has authored and/or illustrated more than 130 children's books. With Suzanne Williams she is the author of the popular Goddess Girls, Heroes in Training, and Grimmtastic Girls series. She lives in Raleigh, N.C. and can be found at www.joanholub.com.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5 Levy presents the basic facts of the framing of the Constitution in a series of questions and answers. Background is provided in a very cursory explanation of the American Revolution, the Articles of Confederation, and Shay's Rebellion. Although there is no index, readers will have little difficulty locating individual topics by skimming the boldly printed questions, which are arranged in a rough chronological sequence. Like Fritz' Shhh! We're Writing the Constitution (Putnam, 1987), Levy includes small bits of interesting social trivia to add appeal to the text. Fritz' book is the better of the two, but Levy's is a good second choice for this age group. The pen-and-ink drawings on each page are bland, and important details are occasionally lost in the gutter. Elaine Fort Weischedel, Turner Free Library, Randolph, Mass.
