More Praise for Google It: A History of Google

“Investigative journalist Redding does an admirable job of chronicling Larry and Sergey’s amazing successes and will inspire young people to follow in their ingenious footsteps. It’s more comprehensive than other books for young readers about Google’s founders, with energetically written short chapters, interesting facts, graphics, and photos” ―Booklist, starred review

“This readable and breezy history of the tech behemoth [is] An appealing and timely look at a universally relevant subject and a good fit for STEAM-related reading lists.” ―School Library Journal

“This chronological history of the first two decades of Google is attractively packaged to appeal to a teen audience. … Humorous accounts of Google’s unpretentious beginnings as a student project, and its early years as a bare-bones startup in a friend’s garage will intrigue teens who dream of growing their own projects into software and devices used by millions.” ― VOYA

Elon Musk: A Mission to Save the World

A riveting and beautifully designed YA biography that shows how a once-bullied school boy became an iconic visionary who the New York Times described as “arguably the most important and successful entrepreneur in the world.”

Elon Musk is the visionary behind SpaceX and CEO of the electric car company Tesla. He is working on unique and daring improvements to both public transit and solar energy. And then, there’s his highly-publicized plans for colonizing Mars…

But behind the mind-blowing headlines and legendary drive is the story of a bullied and beaten school boy, who through creativity and determination decided to rewrite his story and find his own way to make the world a better place. And to do so with a sense of fun and style.

From hosting raves to pay for college to re-writing the rules on space travel, Elon Musk has always gone his own way. And now, award-winning investigative journalist, Anna Crowley Redding takes readers on a well-researched trip through Elon’s life and accomplishments.
