Leaders of America
Capsule Biographies of over 260 Famous Personalities
This one I found when I was weeding the juvenile nonfiction. Of course it is old and worn out, but take a look at these cartoon illustrations. The color palette is awful and everyone looks like they had some kind of tanning booth accident.

Will a kid from this century want to use this book? Not a chance.
