    1. 109 Forgotten American Heroes…And nine or so villainsBy Chris Ying and Brian McMullenThe heroes in this book aren’t all people, and not all of the people heroes are real. Everything in this book is worth reading, however-- you won’t get this information in any history textbook, and it’s all worth having. All of it is true, and you’d be surprised how much of it makes you want to find out more on the subject. A great way to get hooked on history!Key Issues: Perceptions, who’s a hero, a [...]


    2. I expected more from DK. Some are really heroes, others are pretty questionable. Too snazzy and pop for easy reading, not enough info, no further sources. With less effort and space spent on putting writing in circles, writing sideways, etc, more info could have been put on each page. I realize that the special effects are considered necessary these days but I sincerely hope this doesn't become DK's modus operandi. Until now they used spectacular photos and layout, but it was in service to infor [...]


    3. Witty and funny account of American heroes who are either left out of the textbooks, or who are well known but actually are responsible for some pretty amazing things. Who know Jefferson was responsible for introducing Macaroni to America! Covers not just individuals who invented the modern way of measuring feet, or invented Tabasco Sauce, but also animals like Cher Ami - a pigeon responsible for saving over 100 soldiers during WWI. Can be read as a whole, or each individual biography only takes [...]


    4. "Heroes"? Well, maybe, maybe not. But the American people and things highlighted in this fun book certainly had an impact on our history and/or our culture. Two pages per hero in a terrific eye-catching format, this is a unique resource for libraries. While it's not a must-purchase, it would make a fun springboard for student research on "forgotten heroes".


    5. This is a chaotic book that covers a huge range of topics from the inventor of the tool that shoe store clerks use to measure your foot to the folks who keep the Washington Monument clean and sparkling. The book will remind you of DK's "Pick Me Up" and other such titles. Easy to booktalk, easy to jump into at any point. -Maeve


    6. Broad coverage of topics and people in chronological order, but done with much humor and creativity. Each two-page spread is unique, but some of the print is so small I cannot read it even with my extra-strong glasses.Lots of material here to interest many different people.


    7. Kind of stupid. "Presented by McSweeney's" really? From the creator of corn flakes to the guy who got the whole fast food thing going, it's just a pointless book, but presented in a super-fun colorful style that makes it look quirkier than it really is. Perfect for holiday gift giving.


    8. Fun snippets. It's definitely not hard-core research or intellectualism, but it's enough to spark curiousity.


    9. Cool stuff -- another fabulously-designed book from DK.Booktalking points: p. 23 Mac and cheese; p. 94 Cher Ami, the famous carrier pigeon; p. 115 SPAM


    10. A fun light read. The pages are very busy and it is too long for little kids. But is a great book and very interesting.


    11. I like this book a lot. It is very funny. And I am in it as a hero, so there's also that reason to like it a lot.:-D


    12. I did learn some things. It really was geared for the elementary and middle school ages. A good read for those interested learning more about American heroes.
