    When I first saw Meet My Famous Friends on , the very first thing that came to my mind was this could be awesome thought And the book is awesome After reading another great book from the same author My Nazi Nemesis , which was a lotserious I was positively shocked with this book We have Mark Train, Michelanjello , Martin Luther Kingpin Jr., Edgar A Poet and manyhistorical characters whose names are twisted so that the book becomeshumorous and fun to read When I first saw Meet My Famous Friends on , the very first thing that came to my mind was this could be awesome thought And the book is awesome After reading another great book from the same author My Nazi Nemesis , which was a lotserious I was positively shocked with this book We have Mark Train, Michelanjello , Martin Luther Kingpin Jr., Edgar A Poet and manyhistorical characters whose names are twisted so that the book becomeshumorous and fun to read And it was fun to read, at least for me The only, let s say drawback was that the book is a little bit too short But forty pages of fun will suffice After My Nazi Nemesis , it was both a bit surprising and refreshing to see that DiSilvio wrote this This only proves that pen and paper can show the clear genius of some writers And this short and fun to read book proves that DiSilvio knows how to write so we can expectin the future I love it

    The illustrations were cute and unique, but the text was just too corny for me That said, it probably is a perfect fit for the sensibilities and humor of the intended age group.

    Meet My Famous Friends is a children s book that starts out with a promising premise introduce children to interesting historic achievers in a way that adds humor and levity, while simultaneously helping children to remember those achievers by means of humorous mnemonic devices Unfortunately, the book fails to deliver on that premise, offering mostly humor and very little substance Most of the historical figures exhibited appear in the form of a silly play on words i.e Mark Train instead Meet My Famous Friends is a children s book that starts out with a promising premise introduce children to interesting historic achievers in a way that adds humor and levity, while simultaneously helping children to remember those achievers by means of humorous mnemonic devices Unfortunately, the book fails to deliver on that premise, offering mostly humor and very little substance Most of the historical figures exhibited appear in the form of a silly play on words i.e Mark Train instead of Mark Twain, but the blurbs about each figure vary wildly in depth and quality Some historical figures are glazed across with almost nothing of their great works explained, others seem added in at random, touching on portions of their life that, without context, aren t even notable A great example of this is the addition of Ronald Raygun, by all measures an accomplished president and one of only two mentioned in the book, whose blurb focuses on the Star Wars Defense Program without providing any information or context Other figures accomplishments are just plain vague Notably, the page on Mary Cassatt mentions her as an artist, never explaining that she was a photographer and printmaker To compound this issue, the real names of the historical figures is not listed on the page with the joke name, but instead listed at the end of the book in an appended list This complicates the educational portion of the book.The book is written entirely in the same voice, with every blurb being punctuated and formatted as if it were dialogue As a result, the grammar and punctuation within the book is fast and loose While this is not necessarily a bad characteristic in and of itself, there are times in which the style can become confusing to read The primary example of the voice impeding the communication is in the introduction of the book, which interrupts itself numerous times All in all, while I think the concept is solid, the execution could be better, andcare could be given to ensure thorough explanation of historical figures accomplishments
