Editorial Reviews

VOYA
This five-volume "Backstage Pass" series hones the cutting edge of career-guidance literature for adolescents. Providing realistic behind-the-scenes looks at some high-profile industries, these books introduce readers to the myriad employment opportunities available. Formatting is formulaic: a bold introduction, a historical overview of industry developments and pioneers, a chapter devoted to basic production processes, one chapter outlining a typical day "backstage," and another offering career advice. Appendixes include professional and Internet resources. Animated Series is the collection's finest, distinguished by its crystal-clear focus, smooth transitions, and skilled writing style. Co-creator of the 1990s Spider-Man series and story editor for Showtime's WhirlGirl cartoon, Fingeroth provides an expert's view of the animation industry from its inception, through its popularization by Walt Disney, to its success with contemporary films such as Shrek and Toy Story. In easy-to-understand terms, he describes the forms and processes of animation, deftly illuminating "how the magic works." Fingeroth's valuable career recommendations and resources will assuredly put aspiring cartoon artists on the right track to a career in animation. The complete series proves an on-target addition to Scholastic's High Interest Books collection, despite some inconsistencies in writing quality that stronger editing could have precluded. Consistent use of simplified vocabulary and the series' strong visual appeal makes each title an easy and exciting read for young adults. Vibrant covers, smart formatting, and a plethora of appealing photographs will attract even the most reluctant readers, while acomplement of insider "trade secrets" and contemporary cultural references will maintain interest.

Gr 4-8-Intermediate readers are sure to enjoy these appealing titles. The texts provide historical background and the development of each type of performance. They explain technological advances, the roles of the many different people involved, and take readers through the paces of creating a production. Students learn that each art form requires creativity, commitment, determination, and stamina to meet grueling schedules. The final chapters recommend learning more through interning, volunteering, auditioning, and clubs. The simple, well-organized texts will appeal to reluctant readers. Numerous black-and-white and full-color photos appear throughout. Students interested in the arts are sure to find these books informative.-Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NE Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
