These are quick notes I made as I was summing up how this genre is assembled.

By Michelle Markel and illustrator Emily Lisker

Michelle provided 2 pages of notes in the back.
Note that most of the info came from his autobiography.
And she gave page and a half with expanded details of his timeline.
And a short glossary of four Jewish words.
