Winner Description: 
Written by Sid Fleischman. Illus. HarperCollins/Greenwillow.
Winner Blurb: 

This rip-roaring biography of America’s quintessential humorist is as outrageous as its subject. Twains’s early life is conveyed through memorable quotes and period photographs.  Fleischman disentangles facts from fiction, provides ample documentation, and a version of The Jumping Frog.
