The Fab Four Friends
Many books have been written about the Beatles and their journey to become the iconic band 0f the Golden Age of Rock and Roll. What is remarkable about Susanna Reich's book “Fab Four Friends, the Boys Who Became the BEATLES,” is how she weaves the stories of Paul, George, John and Ringo and their childhood friendships and how they were molded into a band. Susanna tells the story of the boys' many family trials and personal hardships growing up in post-war England, and how they found salvation in their music. Though the boys' experiences were somewhat atypical, any child can relate to hanging out in one’s bedroom listening and enjoying the music of their era. Adam Gustavson's fabulous illustrations depicts the bandmates' childhoods with joy and action. This is the premier book for kids on how a bunch of determined teens grew into the greatest rock band in history: the BEATLES.
