Mary Losure

From the titles, you might think Mary Losure’s books are fiction. But she assures you that every word of ISAAC THE ALCHEMIST: SECRETS OF ISAAC NEWTON, REVEAL’D is not only true, but documented with primary sources. So is WILD BOY: THE REAL LIFE OF THE SAVAGE OF AVEYRON and even THE FAIRY RING, OR ELSIE AND FRANCES FOOL THE WORLD. (In case you wondered, THE FAIRY RING is the not-fictionalized-in-any-way story of two young girls who fooled the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle into thinking they had taken photographs of actual fairies.)
 
A former staff reporter for Minnesota Public Radio and freelance contributor to National Public Radio, she now writes award-winning non-fiction for middle grade readers.
