Whitney experienced Hurricane Katrina while trapped in a building in downtown New Orleans. She was helicoptered out of the city with her son and elderly mother-in-law. During her semester away from home, Whitney lived on Nantucket, researched the island's history and ghost lore, and wrote three children's books set on Nantucket.

My 9 year old son loved this book. This was one of three he read in the series. Walt Disney, Neil Armstrong and Albert Einstein. Each were great reads and he loved the information he got from the books. I enjoyed him reasing it out loud to me the second time he read it. My sons 4th grade class was assigned a biography book to read and report on. There was plenty of information as far as where they were born, how they accomplished what they each did and some sideline info on each of them that was interesting. However, the size of the words to a page and the difficulty would be more appropriate for 3rd grade not 4th.

This was a short easy book for me and I had to read a nonfiction book for school and I have to do a project on it. If you do I suggest doing a travel brochure for disneyland or a time line of his life.

This book proved to be a great read for my son's biography book report. The book was very informative and kept my son engaged. It was an easy read and we both learned so much about Walt Disney!

I bought this for my 7 year old daughter but I read it before I gave it to her. These series are really good and there are lots of things to learn about. My daughter also enjoyed reading.

My seven-year-old son read this book in one day and absolutely loved it. He says he learned a lot from it and is looking forward to reading other biographies. We highly recommend this collection.
