Who Was Babe Ruth? releases today!

I'm a huge biography fan, so I really enjoy writing for Grosset & Dunlap's "Who Was" series. Also known as the "big head" biography series. Here's the scoop on Who Was Babe Ruth?, which releases today!

Babe Ruth came from a poor Baltimore family and, as a kid, he was a handful. It was at a reform school that he discovered his talent for baseball, and by the age of nineteen, he was on his way to becoming a sports legend. Babe was often out of shape and even more often out on the town, but he had a big heart and an even bigger swing! Kids will learn all about the Home Run King in this rags-to-riches sports biography. With black-and-white illustrations throughout.

This is my 4th title in the series for ages 7-11:
Who Was Johnny Appleseed?
Who Was Marco Polo?
Who Was Jim Henson?
Who Was Babe Ruth?

Drop a comment here for a chance to win an autographed copy! Winner will be announced here on my blog in the comments under this post on or about January 19th. Please either leave a contact email or be sure to check back to see if you're the winner.

Here's hoping that Who Was Babe Ruth? is a home run!
