    A reviewer

    This book is for children AND adults that want to read knowledge of famous golf pros names and accomplishments from long ago to current day in a light-hearted way. And, like golf, it can be enjoyed with all three generations of a family while reading together. It is whimsical, but factual, using a line of poetry in large print before rendering a little more detail to fill the page. The forward is by a satisfied Arnold Palmer. I'd like to know who the fourth player is pictured on the front cover with Nicklaus, Palmer and Woods. Is it Mickelson? The Illustrator, Mark Anderson, offered a LOL drawing of Tiger Woods. All his drawings in this book emulated each pros characteristics and captured their stories with art, as whimsical as Klein's words. Maybe another time, another way, we can enjoy an ABC book like this that has golf TERMS like 'A' is for 'Ace', a hole-in-one, 'L' is for a Links course, windy, but fun. 'M' is for a 'mashie', a golf club of lore, and 'P' is for par, what we all hope to score. Also educational for us.
