Gr 2-4 While Adler's biography does not alter the facts concerning Dr. King's life, it does present them in a way which makes complex issues seem overly simplified. Trying to detail the tremendous accomplishments of Dr. King in 48 pages dominated by illustrations leaves many important issues and events subject to cursory coverage. Injustice/reaction/change seems to occur on each page, which could give young readers the wrong impression of the actual magnitude of the sacrifice and turmoil involved in the civil rights movement. The illustrations are undistinguished charcoal sketches, some full page, often limiting the text to a paragraph or two. A list of important dates in Dr. King's life precedes the text. Mention is also made of the celebration of the anniversary of his birth, a fact lacking in a number of previous King biographies. While neither are of outstanding quality, both Bains' Martin Luther King (Troll, 1985) and Hunter's Martin Luther King, Jr. (Bookwright Pr, 1985) present a more complete treatment of Martin Luther King.
