A Q&A with the author

★ “O’Brien’s signature style lends the tableaux enormous flair, humor and zing. Comical tiny details are mischievous and clever. . . . The book quotes Lincoln as saying, ‘Whatever you are, be a good one.’ This team goes beyond good; they excel at making history real, enjoyable and memorable.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A droll companion to a similarly alphabetic title about Benjamin Franklin . . . With quotations from Lincoln incorporated throughout, it’s an amusing and educational portrait of Honest Abe.”
