Review:

“Exceptionally informative and impressively enhanced for young readers with bold color schemes and a stylized photographs or illustrations, "Unsung Heroes" is especially recommended for elementary school and community library biography collections for children. Also very highly recommended by the writing team of Toby Reynolds & Paul Calver is their companion volume: "Fearless Women: Courageous Females who Refused to be Denied."”
The Midwest Book Review
“A series dedicated to men and women who have shown courage in their convictions. Each volume introduces 28 such individuals, who represent a mix of ages, nationalities, and areas of influence. Eight additional short profiles can be found in the back matter of each volume and offer a few more examples. Scientists, sports stars, activists, and artists each have a one-page profile and an accompanying full-page portrait. The entries describe any lasting legacies, such as foundations, initiatives, or charities begun by or named after the individuals. The portraits are stylized representations taken from photos or other recognizable images. The authors include negative facts along with the positive accomplishments.”
