This book is part of a series about famous people as kids and this work is the best one so far. There's not as many individuals in this book as there is in the others, but the bios go into much more detail here. The artists selected are from various backgrounds and a wide range of time periods.

There's also a pretty good bibliography for more reading listed at the end. Adorable illustrations too! Best for middle grades.
