Eleanor Roosevelt's in My Garage. Well, not MY garage...

Eleanor Roosevelt's in My Garage. Well, not MY garage...

Nolan and Olive are back in a new historical adventure!

I was excited to illustrate Candace Fleming’s second book in the ‘History pals’ series - Eleanor Roosevelt’s in my garage. Like Ben Franklin’s in My Bathroom, this book has both spot illustrations and graphic novel style stories about Eleanor Roosevelt’s life. I have to admit, I was wondering how Candace could make this book as fun as her Ben Franklin book considering Eleanor Roosevelt’s history isn’t quit so ancient as ben Franklin’s - but she did! Reading the manuscript while preparing to illustrate it was a blast. It’s a very funny and moving book. Highly recommended (and not just because I drew the pictures!) for students looking for some history they may not know about.

Here’s what the publisher says about it: When Eleanor Roosevelt time travels to Nolan and Olive's house in modern-day Illinois, the kids don't know who she is at first. After all, she's old and wearing a hairnet. But the First Lady of the United States--some 80 years ago, that is-- isn't a mystery for long when she starts spouting things like "You must do the things you think you cannot do." Fresh off a visit from Ben Franklin, Nolan and Olive know what they're in for with this latest guest: an adventure. From drawing on ideals of civil protest to save the town park, to (almost) doing a loop-de-loop in a single-engine plane, to avoiding that know-it-all snoop Tommy Tuttle, there's one laugh after the next in this second book in the History Pals series. Fun back matter expands the story and unpacks the amazing life of Eleanor Roosevelt.

Look for it in your local bookstore or order online from some company I’ve never heard of, I think it’s called Amazon…they have some books.

The book features dozens of spot illustrations.


It also features 4 graphic novel style stories based on actual events in Eleanor Roosevelt’s life.

A Frightful New Book! (In the best way possible!)
