readers will eagerly snatch up these short but satisfying biographies. ...
Captioned action photos, a page of "Fun Facts," and a useful glossary appear in
every volume." --School Library Journal
appealing and easy to follow, these biographies are a great addition to a
biography/sports section in any library!"
