Format: Paperback
I absolutely love the Beatles and think this is an ideal book to introduce young readers to them. I also think this is the ideal book for young Beatle fans as well as just the right spark to ignite a flaming love for them.

This book provides a plethora of information about each Beatle's boyhood; the inception of the band; the meteoric rise of the world's greatest band and their ultimate parting of company.

The drawings are just delightful and my favorites were of young George Harrison and another of Olivia and George with their young Beatle coiffed son, Dhani. I just love it!

Beatle fans will catch a picture of Paul writing with his right hand on page 14; since Paul was left handed, the pen would have been in his left hand. Another picture that jumps out at fans is on page 60. George is drawn playing his famous lead with his left hand and Paul is drawn playing his Hofner bass with his right hand. That would not have happened - Paul was the only left handed guitarist in the Beatles.

Wonderful for all ages and just the right gift for that young Beatle fan. No doubt it will be a treasured possession. I just love it! This is a book I would happily give to young readers. They, too will endorse it with a hearty YEAH,YEAH, YEAH!

I loved this book because it contains all relevant information but at the same time it is very entertaining! For us, who have been there, it is a trip down memory lane, for my kids, who don't know anything about the Beatles, it is a good source of information.

Not at all what I expected very poor quality. I'm sorry for feedback but I was really disappointed. I offered them to a teac at a school, she had no use for them. I was expecting all Beatle memorabilia. Please help. I'm housebound after having a stroke. Thanks. Deirdre
