About the Author

Elizabeth Mann is the author of 11 Wonders of the World books, cited by Booklist as one of the ten best series for young readers.

Alan Witschonke has illustrated five Wonders of the World books.


The ongoing Wonders of the World series hits a high point with this dramatic retelling of the construction of the Taj Mahal. Mann begins with two pages of prose that relay the commonly told legend, but then proceeds to explode that legend with descriptive writing, colorful illustrations, ancient paintings, maps, and photographs.... Startling details abound... the photos of priceless relics bring the story alive, and young readers will love the fold-out Taj Mahal diagram, which resembles a game board.... Shah Jahan's excesses helped bring about the demise of the Mughal Empire, and this insightful book will bring readers closer to understanding the meaning of what has been left behind.-- (11/15/2008) Elizabeth Mann has produced another outstanding offering in her Wonders of the World series... Opulent illustrations by Alan Witschonke supplement the text. A double-page foldout containing the floor plan of the entire Taj Mahal shows the enormity of the architectural feat. Timeline, Taj Mahal facts, glossary, and bibliography are included.-- (02/25/2009)
