Gr 5-8-These titles have striking full-color covers, a clear and readable design, and substantive texts that provide solid information about each leader's life and brutal death. There are archival photos and reproductions that were once part of newspaper headlines, not distant history. Discussions of the fates of the assassins, the accusations of conspiracy, and even a serviceable, clinical color diagram of the Lorraine Motel where James Earl Ray (or someone) assassinated Dr. King are included. Still, one has to wonder about a series whose focal point is the act of murder itself. Standard biographies or stand-alone titles like Rebecca C. Jones's The President Has Been Shot: True Stories of the Attacks on Ten U.S. Presidents (Dutton, 1996) should be sufficient.-Sue Sherif, Alaska State Library, Anchorage Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
