Where Do You Think You're Going, Christopher Columbus?

by Jean Fritz


Quick Overview

Fritz makes history accessible once more in this wry biography of a legendary explorer. A "School Library Journal" Best Book of the Year. Illustrations.


In her role as biographer, Jean Fritz attempts to uncover the adventures and personalities behind each character she researches. "Once my character and I have reached an understanding," she explains, "then I begin the detective work--reading old books, old letters, old newspapers, and visiting the places where my subject lived. Often I turn up surprises and of course I pass these on." It is her penchant for making distant historical figures seem real that brings the characters to life and makes the biographies entertaining, informative, and filled with natural child appeal. Size 0.2" H x 9.22" L x 6.96" W, 80 pages
