Grade 3–5—These attractive books are based on personal interviews with the featured writers. The frequent use of direct quotes makes the texts particularly enjoyable. They also give readers a look into the individuals' family, friends, and writing experiences. Kids will be fascinated with Ada's childhood home in Cuba; Hale's hat collection and love of surfing; and Fleischman's passion for magic. Each book has a color picture of the writer sitting at his/her desk. In addition, there are black-and-white and color photos of them at different ages. Well written, interesting, and useful for reports, these biographies are solid choices.—Stephanie Farnlacher, Trace Crossings Elementary School, Hoover, AL
