Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
Whether these death-defying feats are done by people who are considered to be heroes or who are crazy is open to discussion. Often people have risked their lives to be first in these feats like the woman who went over Niagara Falls in a barrel in 1901. Others such as Evel Knievel have used machines like a motorcycle to accomplish their stunts. Many stunts are performed for movies and add exciting action to films. The thirteen sections in the text cover topics from "What Makes A Daredevil?" to "Taking the Plunge." Color photographs and drawings complement the text. A glossary defines the relevant words. Sidebars provide additional historical information. Short paragraphs increase the readability of the material. A section about further reading lists books and web-based resources for further research. An index provides easy navigation through the text. This book is part of the "Mission Impossible Series." This is a high interest, low reading level series which also includes: Spies: Behind Enemy Lines; Rescue Squad: Saving Lives; and Survivors: Into the Wilderness. Reviewer: Annie Laura Smith
