Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3-6

These biographies are just what kids will want to read for fun: they feature pop-culture stars, are short, and have color photographs throughout. Coverage focuses on professional life and only briefly mentions personal details, gently touching on the subjects' less-desirable traits. For example, in Rock , the comedian's use of objectionable language and the fact that a lot of his humor is for adults, and why, are mentioned. Issues of schooling and missing friends are mentioned in Cyrus . "To Find Out More" sections at the end of each book list DVDs and Web sites as well as books. These titles, somewhat similar to the "Young Profiles" series (ABDO), are not for reports, nor will they date well, but they will circulate.-Erlene Bishop Killeen, Stroughton Area School District, WI
