Synopsis: Discover the famous and the infamous in this updated and expanded edition of The Oxford Children's Book of Famous People. This comprehensive, fully illustrated book tells the stories of over 1,000 women and men--politicians and statesmen, religious leaders, scientists, explorers, philosophers, artists, musicians, sports heroes and many more--who have shaped our world. Ancient rulers share the same page as 20th-century movie stars, giving an unusual but highly entertaining perspective on the range of people who have left their mark on our lives. The articles in this A-to-Z encyclopedia capture the essential facts about each person's life and major achievements. The information has been fully updated, and new biographies have been added. Thematic and chronological indices link people in time and by area of achievement.

Review:
"An ambitious, authoritative undertaking that provides concise, alphabetically arranged biographical sketches on 1000 people.... Libraries with a need for a broad-reaching biographical resource will find this a beautifully formatted addition."--School Library Journal


"1000 of the most famous people the world has ever known, with a short biography of each illustrating accomplishments, failures, or crimes. Over 500 photographs, drawings, and maps complete the picture, and the alphabetical format and detailed introduction make the layout easy to understand. Kids will enjoy both new and familiar faces...and adults can sneak a peek to indulge a guilty pleasure."--Biography Magazine


"Most enjoyable... This is a great book for browsing and for stimulating interest in people who made a larger than usual contribution to history."--Boston Globe


"An old favorite has been updated for the millennium. From Yasser Arafat to Eleanor Roosevelt to Crazy Horse to Ferdinand Porsche, readers young and old will find fascinating information ready to hand."--Yellow Brick Road


"Opening The Oxford Children's Book of Famous People is like unlocking a treasure chest. What riches!... A good book to leave lying open in the family room or bathroom. From age 9 to adult, it's fascinating to read and difficult to put down."--Cleveland Plain Dealer


"Remarkable reference... The facts are not only relevant but interesting and the book is lavishly illustrated.... The volume is a storehouse of knowledge, and it's also fun. A curious child will be enchanted, and a school library enriched."--Baton Rouge Advocate


"Presents its material attractively and includes many people who, though they might not be familiar to children, are worth investigating."--Booklist


"A wonderful quick-reference addition to any workspace."--BookPage


Praise for the original edition:


"Your kids will love the readable style, the colorful illustrations and the references at the end of each entry.... Just a beautifully organized resource for 9-12 year olds"--Teaching K-8
