Maya Angelou A very simple and accessible biography of this celebrated African American woman. Each page is fully illustrated and accompanied by clear and concise text which follows Angelou's life and eventual fame as a writer. It tells how a family friend helped her deal with her troubled childhood by opening up the world of literature to her through stories and poems. Her continued belief that she could do anything despite the colour of her skin is shown through the extraordinary number of different jobs she did, her many travels and her literary achievements. There is a timeline with photographs at the end of the book
