About the Author:

Wil Mara is the author of several nonfiction books for children.

From Booklist:

For cogent and straightforward early introductions to famous people, you’d be hard-pressed to top the humble yet hardworking Rookie Biographies series. In 32 pages, the books use layers of info—large declarative sentences, smaller fast facts, and even smaller captions—to ease a reader’s path into an ever-deeper understanding. Every spread includes a well-chosen one-page photo that brings the text to life. Jackie Robinson traces Number 42’s journey from high-school superstar to Negro League standout to the barrier-smashing icon of the Brooklyn Dodgers. There’s no real getting into the minds of the subjects, but that’s okay—the facts, the pictures, and the back matter (a poem, life tips, a time line, and more) speak for themselves. Grades K-3. --Daniel Kraus
