School Library Journal Review

Gr 7 Up‘From descriptions of the subject's early childhood to the beginnings of his passion for creating special films, this account captures and holds readers' interest. Ferber comments on the subject's single-minded drive to create the pictures in his mind on film, his family's tolerance of his creative impulses, and the cruel teasing that led him into a fantasy world of his own making. By the time he was 14, Spielberg was winning minor awards for his productions. This inspiring biography does not gloss over the sacrifices of Spielberg (and his family), or of the total commitment he gave to become the success he is. Black-and-white photos show the subject and shots from his various films. A clear, highly readable choice for collections needing up-to-date, celebrity biographies.‘Marilyn Fairbanks, East Junior High, Brockton, MA (c) Copyright 2010.
