What A Life! is an exciting introduction to some of history's most amazing people. Did you know that... William Shakespeare earned almost no money from his writing?... Leonard da Vinci wrote backwards in his notebooks so that nobody could read them?... Eva Peron's body was missing for 16 years?... Pablo Picasso never threw anything away, not even empty cereal boxes?... Agatha Christie wrote a book that actually saved someone's life? These and other fascinating biographical facts can be found in What A Life!

This new three-book series takes a fresh approach to making reading both pleasurable and motivating! High-interest biographies focus on less-known facts about famous figures, rather than the chronology of events typical of most biographies.

The What A Life! SeriesSubjects range from historical and political figures to athletes, artists, entertainers, and humanitarians, including: Marie Curie, Eva Peron, Muhammad Ali, Leonardo da Vinci, Alfred Nobel, Maria Montessori, I.M. Pei, Agatha Christie, Bruce Lee, William Shakespeare, Pablo Picasso, Mother Teresa.
