With the best elements of KID PRESIDENTS, KID ATHLETES and KID ARTISTS colourful illustrations, kid-relatable subjects, and real stories of childhood conflict, comedy, and triumph KID AUTHORS tells true tales from the childhoods of a wide range of the world s most beloved authors before they were famous. Did you know: Sam Clemens (AKA Mark Twain) loved to hold watermelon-seed-spitting contests, play hooky, and borrow boats to go fishing and digging for turtle eggs with his best friend Tom, of course! Zora Neale Hurston first learned to walk when a hungry wild hog wandered into her house for some of her mother s cornbread and young Zora had to toddle her way to safety.
