Publisher Description

The world-renowned architect I. M. Pei is the twenty-fourth hero in the New York Times bestselling picture book biography series. 

This friendly, fun biography series focuses on the traits that made our heroes great--the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves. Each book tells the story of an icon in a lively, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers and that always includes the hero's childhood influences. At the back are an excellent timeline and photos. This book features I. M. Pei, the award-winning Chinese American architect whose projects include the John F. Kennedy Library and the pyramid at the Louvre. Included is a pop-up of the Louvre to help young readers see the space and Pei's design in 3D!

This friendly, fun biography series inspired the PBS Kids TV show Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum. One great role model at a time, these books encourage kids to dream big.

Included in each book are:  
  • A timeline of key events in the hero’s history
  • Photos that bring the story more fully to life   
  • Comic-book-style illustrations that are irresistibly adorable
  • Childhood moments that influenced the hero   
  • Facts that make great conversation-starters
  • A virtue this person embodies: I. M. Pei's ingenuity led him and his designs to brave new heights.
