Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6This biography begins with Elways birth in 1960 and ends with the 1998 season when the quarterback won his first Super Bowl ring with the Denver Broncos. Christopher packs this lively account with play-by-play action. Though filled with factual information, the text reads like a story. Unfortunately, the book lacks an index, bibliography, source notes, or suggestions for further reading. Dan Hirshbergs John Elway (Chelsea, 1997), which has an index and a short suggested-reading list, covers the same material but is dated. Also, because Denver won the 1999 Super Bowl, there are sure to be more biographies in the making. However, Christophers book is an entertaining read for sports fans. Black-and-white action shots of the athlete appear in a middle section.Barb Lawler, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
