Pass go and collect $200 : the real story of how Monopoly was invented

Tanya Lee Stone ; illustrated by Steven Salerno.
Summary
With over one billion players across 111 countries, Monopoly is recognized today as one of the world's most famous games. Have you ever wondered how it was invented? In the late 1800s lived Lizzie Magie, a clever and charismatic woman with a strong sense of justice. Waves of urban migration drew Lizzie's attention to rising financial inequality. One day she had an idea: create a game that shows the unfairness of the landlord-tenant relationship. But game players seemed to have the most fun pretending to be wealthy landowners. Enter Charles Darrow, a marketer and salesman with a vision for transforming Lizzie's game into an exciting staple of American family entertainment. Boldness, imagination, and ruthless competition combine in this riveting story that sets the record straight on Monopoly's origins. -- From dust jacket.
