Children's LiteratureThe Chicago Bulls are the basketball dynasty of the 90s, with 6 championship rings to show for it. Most people associate the Chicago Bulls with Michael Jordan, Scotty Pippen, Dennis Rodman and Coach Phil Jackson. But where did this team come from? How did they go from a mediocre team to become six-time world champions? John Grabowski, in this volume of the "Great Sports Teams" series, begins by covering the history of the franchise, from their start in 1966 to their losing seasons over the last few years. Grabowski then writes about the individuals who made a difference in the teams history, covering their successes both on and off the court. With a great deal of detail and accompanying photographs, the author captures the spirit of this great team. He also provides younger readers with a wonderful starting point for learning about this great team. His storytelling style helps keep the reader captured and want more. The end of the book contains a further reading section, bibliography, index and timeline of Bulls moments. This book is an excellent addition to any school library non-fiction collection. 2003, Lucent Books, Ages 12 to 18.
