    Comments about ARTISTS, WRITERS, THINKERS, DREAMERS:

    This was a fascinating book with many interesting "factoids" about celebrities, both current and historical. The drawings were amusing. The facts ranged from odd and every day things to great feats of engineering, so there was something to intrigue a reader young or older. The format made it easy to read a few pages during a meal, and put it down until later, so it's good for busy people.
