Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Milliner
Meet the Vikings is one of six football-centric, cookie-cutter books in the "Smart About Sports" series. The introductory chapter (each "chapter" being one page of text and one photograph) states that the "Vikings lived a long time ago...the players and fans have the Viking spirit." The team joined the NFL in 1961 and won the NFL title eight years later. At the time they were nicknamed the "Purple People Eaters." We also learn that their home games are played at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, where "fans can get very loud." The next two pages show eight cards from the authors' private stash and give a factoid or two about each player. Other features include a two-page picture spread inviting the reader to find as many things beginning with "s" as they can (why "s"? What does that have to do with Vikings?); and a section entitled "Brain Games." These games include a (mediocre at best) five-line poem, and two statements, only one of which is true. One strange but interesting factoid is that Chuck Foreman's real name is not Charles, but Walter. For further stimulation, there are maps with numbers indicating the birth places of random players. The final pages include a record book and a list of football terms like yard and touchdown. It is tough to determine who this book would interest. Surely hard-core fans of any age know what a touchdown is, and the games and maps are an obvious but unsuccessful ploy to justify the "Smart about Sports" premise. Young fans of the sport in general, or the team specifically, may find this a quick and pleasing read; those expected to fork over , however, may be less pleased. Reviewer: Naomi Milliner
