Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-While this biography does not provide new information or insight into the King, it does fill a need for material about the legendary performer. The clearly written, brief text describes Presley's shyness as a child and the difficulties of growing up in poverty. Krohn fleshes out the details of her subject's interest in singing, his early career, and the breaks and choices that led him to stardom. The easy-to-understand prose will appeal to reluctant readers. Several black-and-white photographs augment the text.-Renee Steinberg, Fieldstone Middle School, Montvale, NJ
