Alan Katz's new Lieography books made me laugh out loud!! This outrageously funny new series will surely be a hit with all my students! There's no doubt in my mind that these unique stories will not only motivate students to read, but inspire even the most reluctant readers to further research the true stories of the famous people who are introduced in these amusing tales.
