Who knew the Beatles were funny? The acclaimed authors and illustrator of Lincoln Tells a Joke team up in this rollicking account of how the Fab Four's sense of humor and musical talent sparked Beatlemania.

Q: How do you find all this business of having screaming girls following you all over the place?

George: Well, we feel flattered...

John: ... and flattened.

When the Beatles burst onto the music scene in the early 1960s, they were just four unknown lads from Liverpool. But soon their off-the-charts talent and offbeat humor made them the most famous band on both sides of the Atlantic. Lively, informative text and expressive, quirky paintings chronicle the phenomenal rise of Beatlemania, showing how the Fab Four’s sense of humor helped the lads weather everything that was thrown their way—including jelly beans.
