This is my second deck of author cards. They are great for kids to learn about authors. A perfect gift for anyone who loves literature.

Format: Cards
I ordered several sets of cards--explorers, scientists, authors--thinking they would be like the traditional authors cards I played as a child. They are actually numbered playing cards including face cards (king, queen, jack, jocker) with a picture of an author in the center of each card. When I tried to play games with children, they referred to the numbers rather than the person pictured. Also the print of the person's name in the center was hard to read and the biographical information was in very small print. While they might be better than cards without any information, the educational value is peripheral at best.

The cards had a plasticized coating and were very sturdy but $9 is expensive for playing cards.

I love this classic card game. Sadly, though the seller was rude and seemed more willing to argue than actually provide the level of service which Amazon expects from all of its on-line sellers. I would recommend that you review carefully who is selling this otherwise wonderful item for the person who loves literature.
