Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Just the facts is not Cub Reporter's style. In the Cub Reporter Meets Famous Americans series, a young bear journalist interviews history-changing Americans. While he does ask about their childhood and background, his questions focus on each person's greatest accomplishments. Refreshingly, the questions are individualized rather than fitting into a cookie-cutter mold. Responses are given in a fictionalized first-person account, but the setup is clear. In Amelia Earhart, the aviator highlights her record-breaking flights, how she prepared for them, why they were dangerous, and how flying was different in the past. Because of the interview technique, readers will have to refer to the time line to learn about the end of these Americans' lives. A terrific alternative to traditional biographies.--Leeper, Angela Copyright 2015 Booklist"
