Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6–8—These enjoyable books provide cogent chunks of information in a paragraph or two per page with plenty of brief sidebars. Each page is loaded with pictures that clarify the texts. The pace is fast, and the texts, though accurate, are less important than the combined effect of the graphics, photographs, and words. Dedicated hip-hoppers generally get their information from the Web, where they can experience both audio and video, but for those who need print resources for an assignment, these volumes provide solid information in a package that provides more fun than the many other titles on the topic.—Carol Jones Collins, Hanover Park High School, East Hanover, NJ
