Amelia Earhart (The First Names Series) (Hardcover)
Very accessible biography for the slightly older student beyond the Who Was...? series. Loved the illustrations, the smart page design and the STEAM aspect of this readable series.

About the Author
"In line with the series premise and overall informal tone, the author refers to him throughout as "Harry" (his stage name). Andrew Prentice does likewise for his free-spirited subject in the co-published Amelia Earhart (illustrated by Mike Smith), taking "Amelia" (or, in childhood chapters, "Millie") from homemade backyard roller coaster to final disappearance . . . Together with its companion, stimulating portraits of two colorful, driven historical figures."
