Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
11/01/2013
Gr 5–8—Along with high-appeal content, these celebrity biographies also offer high visual appeal with an engaging, colorful format and numerous photos. However, there is perhaps too much happening. Sidebars (which detail the stars' favorite foods, movies, etc.) can distract from the texts, which are often choppy and too casual. Quotes from the actors/performers are scattered throughout, and full-color photos adorn almost every page (in addition to a final spread in each book devoted just to "pics"). The titles read more like teen magazines than biographies, but that might not be a problem if libraries have high demand for information about these particular stars.
