Children's Literature - Leila Toledo
Andre Agassi is a winner of the Wimbleton men's singles championship, an Olympic gold medallist and a winner of the U.S. and Australian Opens. Matt Christopher, the number one sports writer for children, gives an exciting look at the professional tennis world. A rudimentary knowledge of tennis helps one to understand the significance of various events. His portrayal of Andre Agassi's childhood, training, successes, failures and his battle to overcome the influence and damage to his psychological well-being by his fanatical father points out the importance of the role of parents in the development of a child.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6--Christopher begins with Agassi's early childhood and ends in 1996 when he won a gold medal at the Summer Olympics. In addition to describing the athlete's triumphs, Christopher discusses his losses as well as his behavior problems exhibited on the court at the beginning of his career. A grouping of glossy black-and-white photographs as well as a page of career highlights appear at the center of the book. A serviceable biography for tennis fans.--Rachel Fox, Port Washington Public Library, NY
