Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The life of Madonna is explored in this book from A&D biographies. The introduction, "Madonna Mania," describes just how impressive Madonna's career has been. Chapter one, "Little Nonnie," explores Madonna's childhood and the effect her mother's death had on her life. Chapter two, "Dance Fever," describes Madonna's interest in dance and brief stint in university. Chapter three, "A Bite of the Big Apple," explains how Madonna tried various art forms in New York City before settling on a rock music career. Chapter four, "Rockin' and Rollin,'" describes Madonna's first few hits. Chapter five, "Desperately Seeking Stardom," recounts Madonna's new-found fame and her marriage to Sean Penn. Chapter six, "Surprise Failures," describes Madonna's failed attempts at movies. Chapter seven "The Top of her Game," details the peak years of Madonna's career. Chapter eight, "Singer and Actress," explains Madonna's further acting attempts, including her performance in Evita. Chapter nine, "British Beau," describes Madonna's relationship with Guy Ritchie. Chapter ten, "Screen Dreams," recounts Madonna's work habits, donations to charities, and her estimated financial worth. Numerous color photographs of the singer illustrate this detailed biography of the singer. Not only would this book be of interest to fans of the singer, it would be an interesting read for anyone hoping to pursue a career in entertainment. 2003, ABDO, Ages 8 up.
