Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
11/01/2014
Gr 4–7—Each book in this "best-of" football series introduces 13 current players. Some, such as Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, are already superstars. Others are just starting out, like Andrew Luck, of the Indianapolis Colts, and Russell Wilson, who led the Seattle Seahawks to a Super Bowl win in his second season. These are fact-based yet admiring sketches; for instance, in Receivers, Calvin "Megatron" Johnson is described as "[having] it all: size, strength, speed, great hands, and off-the-chart athleticism." Each brief player profile is supplemented by color photos, stats, and insets defining a few terms or words. The vague definitions are unhelpful: draft is defined as "the system by which NFL teams select new players" and franchise simply as "team." These short profiles will attract browsers, though the series fails to distinguish itself from others on this popular topic.
