Stories in each title are told through the eyes of a student who acts as a historian gathering facts,artifacts, and photographs from interviews, museums, and other locations. A mission is given at thebeginning of each book. "Consider This" asks the reader to think about what might have happened if another path had been chosen. Sidebars offer information, "Further Missions" gives the reader moreactivities. Although the chapters are short, these are good starter books for historical periods. Librarianswill want to add these books to their collection as they deal with research, prediction, and creativeproblem solving. Bibliography. Glossary. Websites. Table of Contents. Index. Sue N. Howard,Educational Reviewer, Memphis, Tennessee. RECOMMENDED.
School Library Journal (November 1, 2011)
Gr 4-6-On the first page of each title, readers learn that their "mission" is to "think like a historian" so thatthey can learn about the past. Then, unnamed young narrators take family road trips and visit museumsand living-history parks and interact, complete with dialogue, with fictional historians and museum staff,who help them discuss and analyze topics. The books close with "Mission Accomplished" summaries andsuggestions for further activities. The format and large font limit space for significant backgroundinformation and details, and the narratives often seem gimmicky, factors that will limit the usefulness of and audience for these books.

Booklist (December 1, 2009 (Vol. 106, No. 7))
Grades 2-5.
Two texts run though this unusual book. The first is Kerley’s account of Samuel Clemens’ 13
-year-
old daughter, Susy, who decides to write her father’s biography in her journal. The second is a
series of excerpts from that actual biography, neatly printed
in scriptlike font with Susy’s misspellingsintact. These entries appear on smaller, folded pages, each marked “JOURNAL,” that are tipped into the
gutters of this large-
format picture book’s double
-page spreads. Though a story about someone writing abook sounds a bit static
and it sometimes is
Kerley manages to bring Susy and her famous father tolife using plenty of household anecdotes. With a restrained palette and a fine sense of line,
Fotheringham’s stylized, digital illustrations are wonderfully freew
heeling, sometimes comical, and as
eccentric as Susy’s subject. Appended are author’s notes on Samuel and Susy Clemens, tips on writing a
biography, a time line, and source notes for quotes. An original.
Horn Book (January/February, 2010)
 At age thirteen, Susy Clemens wrote a biography of her father, Mark Twain, an undertaking that informsthis unusual account covering both Susy as biographer and Twain as biographee. Kerley details Susy'sprocess of writing about and observing her father ("She noted his habits. She described his fine qualities.She even described his not-so-fine qualities"), mentioning that Susy would often include primary sources(such as a silly poem he wrote about their donkey) in her biography. Similarly, Kerley also uses primarysources, inserting seven small facsimiles of Susy's journal pages (complete with "frequently desperate"spellings) into the body of the book. Separate fonts represent Kerley's narrative, Susy's direct quotes, andTwain's own words. Fotheringham's muted palette and large, sturdy illustrations provide discreetcounterpoint to this complicated design. The target audience may not be familiar with Twain's work for afew more years, and Kerley's author's-note references ("Ernest Hemingway said that 'all modern American literature comes from...Huckleberry Finn'") may be lost on middle-grade readers. The art of writing is not, however, and an appended guide to writing biographies sums up Susy's approach.Backmatter also includes a time line of Twain's life and source notes.
