How They Croaked by Georgia Bragg

Bragg, G. (2011). How they croaked: The awful ends of the awfully famous. NY: Walker

How They Croaked is classified as a children's book (just barely). Many students will find it highly entertaining as it includes the awful ends of the awfully famous. The author wrote this book in a very engaging way. This book approaches the medical histories of famous people and chronicles their last days in a scientifically accurate and witty way.

How They Croaked The Awful Ends of the Awfully Famous exemplifies the evaluative criteria of organization. Author Georgia Bragg has a table of contents that lists the name of the person as well as the title of the chapter for easy reference. She begins with the basic information of the person, and then she tells the story. She ends each chapter with interesting factoids and definitions for words the ready may not have understood. The end of the book also contains a great index that can be used to search for more specific subject matter.
