About The Book
Light up the sky with this fact-tastic nonfiction Level 3 Ready-to-Read, part of a series about the history of fun stuff!
In this book readers will learn all about how fireworks were invented in China over 2,000 years ago, how Queen Elizabeth I created a special honor for the person who created the best fireworks, and much more! A special section at the back of the book includes Common Core–vetted extras on subjects like social studies and math, and there’s even a fun quiz so readers can test themselves to see what they’ve learned! Learning history has never been so much fun!
About The Illustrator
Saturday morning cartoons and lounge music, big-time wrestling and creature movies, bowling alleys and flying saucers, kitschy fun parks and the Ramones, diners, Dino-Land, Dean Martin–these are just a few of Daniel Guidera’s favorite things that inspire his signature Illustration-A-Go-Go! style. His work has appeared in venues such as MAD Magazine, Topps baseball cards, cookie boxes, in-flight magazines, great metropolitan newspapers, technology magazines and grade school textbooks. Most recently, Daniel had immense fun creating illustrations for the iPad e-book app My Dad Drives A Roller Coaster Car, currently available in the iTunes store. He’s won awards, but then, so has everybody.
