The first children's book to come from the acclaimed editors at McSweeney's literary journal, 109 Forgotten American Heroes is an off-kilter exploration of some of our nation's most incredible--and little known--stories.

Learn new and amazing stories about the contributions, inventions, wisdom, savvy, courage, and ingenuity of 109 great Americans such as John Russell Bartlett (the first to compile American words and trace their origin), Mr. Charles F. Brannock (who invented the first tool to accurately measure foot size), Cher Ami (a pigeon who effectively saved 194 American soldiers during World War I), and Thomas Jefferson (founding father, author, architect, president, and the man who introduced Americans to macaroni)!

Dynamic photographs and funny, ingenious graphics bring the stories to life. Truly meant for the whole family, there is something in here for everyone.
