Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Shelly McCoy
A relatively new sport, paintball is a game of excitement with fast-moving action and the challenge of "survival." No wonder this is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Most paintball games are played in teams and are like a "capture the flag" game, but there are many different ways to play including scenario games. Common paintball markers, which look like guns, are explained as well as other equipment and tips in short chapters that make this an easy read. The importance of playing fairly and not behaving like a "squid" or beginner is talked about in one chapter. Good sportsmanship and playing a game with equipment similar to a gun can make for an interesting discussion in a curriculum discussing ethics. Plenty of vibrant pictures and graphics convey the sense of adrenaline and fun of the sport. You have to find a commercial paintball facility to rent the right equipment and since there are many paintball facilities now, one read and readers may be begging their parents to take them "this weekend." Part of a series of "For Fun" books, it is great to see some non-typical sports promoted. Reviewer: Shelly McCoy
