Praise For Teedie: The Story of Young Teddy Roosevelt…
"Brown’s characteristically vigorous scrawls capture both the scrawny boy and the bulldog of a man, infusing his vignettes with a sizable helping of wit. All in all, this is a spot-on introductory book for lower grades."--Kirkus Reviews
". . . vignettes of scratchy pen-work that capture humor and drama with equal ease—and shows Teddy’s progression from a wispy twig into a big stick . . . a more kid-friendly hook in the young man whose determination trumped his boyhood shortcomings."--Booklist
