Who Were The Beatles?

Who Were The Beatles?



Almost everyone can sing along with the Beatles, but how many young readers know their whole story?  Geoff Edgers, a Boston Globe reporter and hard-core Beatles fan, brings the Fab Four to life in this Who Was…? book.  Readers will learn about their childhoods in Liverpool, their first forays into rock music, what Beatlemania was like, and why they broke up.  It’s all here in an easy-to-read narrative with plenty of black-and-white illustrations!
