Grosset & Dunlap’s Who Was? series is the leading biography series for young readers, with over 50 titles featuring famous thinkers, politicians, and history-makers published to date. The eclectic collection includes everyone from Frida Kahlo to Jane Goodall to Dolly Parton. With their quirky cover art, interior illustrations, and novel-like prose, the Who Was…? books make learning about important figures exciting and accessible for middle-grade readers, both in the classroom and at home. The success of the series has inspired two spin-offs, What Was…?, which describes important historical events and landmarks, and Quien Fue…?, for Spanish language readers.
