Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The "Trailblazers of the Modern World" series brings readers another in-depth look at the challenges and life of someone who has made a great contribution to the world; in this case the world of music. With his first hit in 1956, "Heartbreak Hotel," Elvis had over 107 Top Forty Hits by the time he died in 1977 at the age of 42. Appealing to a variety of audiences, Elvis had hits on the pop charts, the country charts, and the rhythm and blues charts. Elvis had a twin brother who died at birth so he grew up an only child. He placed fifth in his first talent contest at age ten. His parents scraped enough money together to buy him a guitar and by seventh grade he took it to school almost daily. In 1948 the Presley family moved to Memphis, Tennessee in search for more opportunities. When he was just 21 years old, Elvis sold over 300,000 copies of his first album and was able to fulfill a long-time dream of buying a house for his parents. He also appeared in thirty-one movies and was in the army. A timeline, glossary, index, and bibliography including Web sites are also included. 2003. World Almanac Library,

    Highly Recommended

    Bought this book because my second graders were very interested in Elvis during our biography unit. The photos are awesome! They are nicely done and the text was fairly easy for them to understand with it being a read aloud. If you are an Elvis fan, it is a must have.
