Haydn Middleton is the author of a number of books, both those aimed at children and several fascinating novels of modern British fiction.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-4?These titles explain the significance of each man's contribution to society. Middleton and Mitton both write in a simple, engaging style, providing the essential facts and including details that will interest children. Although these figures are painted in a positive light, negative or controversial aspects of their lives are not omitted. Middleton mentions Ford's failed attempt to make peace during World War I and Edison's tendency to ignore his family in favor of his work; Mitton discusses Galileo's argumentative and obstinate disposition. While the somewhat impressionistic pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations on every page are attractive, readers may want to supplement these titles with others that have photographs, such as Shelly Bedik's Thomas Edison (Scholastic, 1995) and Steve Parker's Galileo and the Universe (Chelsea, 1995). However, the easy-to-read style and historical accuracy make these titles good choices for libraries in need of introductory biographies.?Esther C. Ball, Carver Elementary School, Newport News, VA
