Turn about is fair play, and in this picture book biography the character created by author Mark Twain tells Twain's story. He covers briefly the life, times, and influences on an author whose books have become considered American classics. There is much to like about this book including the narrator's voice and authentic vocabulary as well as the endpapers with important bits from Twain's life and the clever use of fonts throughout the book. A Warning to the Reader lets readers know that there will be unusual spellings and word choices employed by the author. Soft pen, ink, and watercolor illustrations show Twain enjoying life, traveling along the Mississippi River, and creating his stories, many of them drawn from his own experiences. Huck Finn looks on as Twain lives out his larger-than-life existence.
