Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-This biography carefully chronicles the pop star's phenomenal career, but downplays his eccentricities, scandals, and dysfunctional family. Quotations from Jackson's autobiography, Moonwalk (Doubleday, 1989), and television interviews are woven into the text. Although the performer's words enliven the portrait, they offer no special insights into the mystique of his reclusive life. Ample space is devoted to his many show-biz triumphs, but discussion of the investigation into allegations that he sexually molested a 13-year-old boy is limited to three sentences. Black-and-white photographs of the Jackson Five, Jackson on his own, and other recording stars appear throughout. While the index is generally accurate, it contains one glaring error-the subject's mentor is indexed under Berry (his first name) instead of Gordy (his last name). This succinct volume will appeal to fans who find the length of Jackson's autobiography off-putting.-Pat Katka, San Diego Public Library
