Ann Kramer is a Heinemann-Raintree author.From Booklist:
Reviewed with Anne Faulkner's Mao Zedong and Liz Gogerly's Sigmund Freud.
Gr. 6-10. Three new titles from the Twentieth Century History series are informative if not equally well written. Mao Zedong and Sigmund Freud are dull and dutiful. In contrast, the Mandela book is one of the best of the many recent YA biographies of the great South African leader. It's accurate and eloquent about the man and the political struggle, and it has dramatic, well-chosen news photos of both. The series design is inviting, with clear type in double columns, lots of full-page photos throughout, a lengthy chronology, and a useful glossary. What's missing in all the books is adequate documentation; the books include only a brief bibliography, and there are no source notes--not a good model for the middle- and high-school report writers who will use these titles.
