Product Details

Praise

“[The Big Ideas Simply Explained books] are beautifully illustrated with shadow-like cartoons that break down even the most difficult concepts so they are easier to grasp. These step-by-step diagrams are an incredibly clever learning device to include, especially for visual learners.” — Examiner.com

“Clever and engaging” — Booklist

“[An] attractive presentation…” — Booklist

“[T]his book takes you through a whirlwind tour of literature through the ages…quick ‘n’ dirty summaries of the books you maybe never got around to reading.” — RedEye, a Chicago Tribune Publication

“The content and tone seem well suited as preparatory handouts to high school English classes.” — Library Journal

The Literature Book tells the stories behind the stories in an engaging manner that will entice even the reluctant reader.” — Voice of Youth Advocates
