Another gem by local author Kathleen Krull! When the Beatles burst onto the music scene in the early 1960s, they were just four unknown lads from Liverpool. But soon their talent and offbeat humor made them the most famous band on both sides of the Atlantic. Lively, informative text and expressive, quirky paintings chronicle the phenomenal rise of Beatlemania, showing how the Fab Four’s sense of humor helped the lads weather everything that was thrown their way—including jelly beans.
