Summary

Summary

Here is a series for students challenged with one of their most typical assignments: write a book report on a book of 100 pages or more. Each Book Report Biography tells the story of a significant person from the past (from politics, science, or the arts) or present (some of today's hottest celebrities and sports heroes).

Booklist Review

Gr. 6^-9. Part of the Book Report Biographies series, this small volume in no way compares with Freedman's dazzling Martha Graham [BKL Ap 1 98], either in writing style or in design (the photos here are small and grainy) or even in price (the Freedman volume is four dollars cheaper). However, Freedman's is a more sophisticated book with adult appeal, and this one is aimed at a middle-grade audience. The facts are accurate, and the style is lively, especially when the authors quote liberally from Graham herself. Chronology; note on sources; list of books and Internet resources for further information. --Hazel Rochman
