Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6 UpAn objective biography, with short factual sentences and equally short paragraphs. Following his subject's life and career, Schuman discusses both the triumphs and less frequent failures this celebrity encountered on the long road to becoming one of the most successful comedians in modern times. The frequent primary-source quotations are carefully footnoted, and the end pages offer information about relevant places to visit (such as NBC Studios in Burbank, CA) and a list of Cosby's various recordings. The page layout is reader friendly. The narrative relates important facts clearly, and is interesting enough for recreational reading. Bill Adler's The Cosby Wit (Morrow, 1989) quotes more extensively from the comic's routines and writings, giving a clearer understanding of his unique brand of humor.Phyllis Graves, Creekwood Middle School, Kingwood, TX
