Description

Put on your blue suede shoes and get ready for the latest title in the Who Was...? series! The King could not have come from humbler origins: Born in Tupelo, Mississippi, during the Depression, he grew up with the blues music of the rural South, the gospel music of local churches, and the country-western classics. But he forged a sound all his own—and a look that was all his own, too. With curled lip, swiveling hips, and greased pompadour, Elvis changed popular music forever, ushering in the age of rock and roll. Geoff Edgers's fascinating biography of this icon of American pop culture includes blackand- white illustrations on nearly every spread.

      • content: 20tkustwan - I loved this book! It was about the famous singer in the 1900's... ELVIS PRESLEY! It was really cool for me to learn something about a singer I knew nothing about. Then I realized that Elvis's history was really cool. At Elvis's concerts, some of the kids thought his outfits were really cool so they wanted to dress like them but their parents wouldn't let them because they thought the outfits were not appropriate. He was also born in the Great Depression. The Great Depression was really sad and his life was sad because his family was poor. I would recommend all of the Who Was? Books.
