The author of Thrilling Thieves rounds up the world’s most famous fugitives. “The research is top notch and deserves our attention” (Kid Lit Reviews).
 
Throughout history—and even today—the head honchos usually like things the way they are. Rocking the boat does not make them happy—not one bit. They may even want your head for going against the grain. But that threat didn’t stop the characters spotlighted in Fantastic Fugitives from changing history. They founded countries, won wars, and even ended empires—all while on the run! History’s Most Wanted covered in this book include:
 
  • Spartacus
  • Martin Luther
  • Harriet Tubman
  • John Dillinger
  • Emmeline Pankhurst
  • Nelson Mandela
  • And six more!
 
The exciting second book in the Changed History series, Fantastic Fugitives lets you follow these historical figures’ fast-paced stories to learn how anyone can change the world. Even you! Just make sure you have your running shoes on.
 
This book is ideal for kids ages eight and up, and is especially good for reluctant readers and those kids who think history reading is simply dry and boring. There are many color illustrations, photographs, and maps included through the book and sidebars with fascinating facts break up larger chunks of text in each chapter. Teachers, librarians, and parents will like that this can be used as a good go-to book to inspire kids to become interested in history.
