Biography of John Lennon of The Beatles. From his wartime birth during WWII in Liverpool, England through his death in New York in 1980 we read about John's life. He was an unwanted child who was sent to live with aunt and uncle as a child. He had a tumultuous relationship with his mother, who was killed when he was just 16 years old. His meeting of Paul McCartney and rise to the fame and fortune of Beatlemania are beautifully and accurately told. Illustrations also include lyrics from John Lennon compositions. Artist uses water color and cut-paper collage add to the beauty of this book. ( )

I really loved this portrayal of the John Lennon story. It was not sugarcoated for children, but realistically told and beautifully illustrated for young and old adults.

Awesome. Short and to the point. I learned things about John that I have never known. It also shows the fact that he wanted peace. ( )
