School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-These titles incorporate writing tips and the same spread on writing a biography "review" (in actuality, a book report) into extremely basic introductions to famous writers. The flowchart of the publishing process and the list of writing terms are also repeated in all four titles, but not all of the terms are used within the body of each one. Each double-page chapter includes clear, captioned illustrations, mostly in color. However, many of the pictures are simply filler. For example, Dahl features a full waste basket: "Roald often rewrote his stories many times before he was happy with his work." Seuss shows a photo of three pen tips accompanied by the caption, "Ted decided to start writing books for children when he was about 30 years old." Blume includes a picture of a rolled-up diploma and a graduation cap next to a sentence that tells what high school the writer attended. The caption for the map in Seuss describes Massachusetts as being surrounded by five New England states; Maine is mentioned but is not shown. The series' focus is on using biographies to teach writing. As such, these books might find a use in classrooms, but they're too limited to serve general readers or report writers.-Kathleen Simonetta, Indian Trails Public Library District, Wheeling, IL (c) Copyright 2010.
