Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Two men square off in a boxing ring. They have gloves on their hands and are preparing to fight. However, this is not a typical boxing match but a kickboxing match. What does this mean for the spectator? They will see these men and women not only throw punches but also kicks. Rising out of full contact karate, this sport is worldwide and while popular in the United States is even more popular in other countries. Terri Sievert provides early and reluctant readers with an introduction to this different take on boxing. The book is well organized and discusses the history and stars of the sport. A title of the "Edge X-Sports" series, the information is interesting, but Capstone Press reuses the stock photography from another of their kickboxing books. While this will not pose a problem for people or organizations buying the books separately, anyone looking for a number of books on the sport may not enjoy the repetition of photographs. However, the good information provided in just a few pages will overshadow the repeated photos. This book is a good selection for any library or school media center. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 10 to 15.
