About the Author:

New York-based Nick Fauchald is the author of numerous children books. He helped create the magazine Every Day with Rachael Ray and has been an editor at Food & Wine and Wine Spectator magazines. Nick attended the French Culinary Institute in Manhattan and has worked with some of the world's best chefs. However, he still thinks kids are the most fun to cook with.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-9 -These biographies of individuals connected to the Civil War are visually attractive, with appealing covers, maps, and numerous illustrations (both black and white and color). Unfortunately, the contents stand in poor contrast to the pretty pictures. Garrison and Stowe contain misspellings, internal inconsistencies, major errors, and numerous omissions. Garrison is also sloppily researched, with 10 of 12 footnotes incorrectly quoted from their sources. Douglass, meanwhile, is woefully unbalanced, devoting two-thirds of the book to his time as a slave (through age 20) and the rest to his remaining-impressive and influential-57 years of life. Crucial omissions and explanations pile up endlessly. Of the available titles on Douglass, Sharman Russell's Frederick Douglass (Chelsea House, 1989) is the most thorough and complete. Jean Fritz's Harriet Beecher Stowe and the Beecher Preachers (Putnam, 1994) is excellent, although it ends at the conclusion of the Civil War.-Ann W. Moore, Schenectady County Public Library, NY
