From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-9-Each volume contains approximately 12 well-written, absorbing, carefully researched sketches of prominent individuals, one-third of whom are females. The gamut of society is represented-rulers, military figures, writers, revolutionaries, scientists, and artists. The Hooblers have judiciously selected the people and arranged them in chronological order, and so provide a vivid sense of each country's history as well. Among the French are Charlemagne, Joan of Arc, Jacques Cartier, Moliere, Robespierre, George Sand, Renoir, and Charles de Gaulle. Included among the Russians are Peter and Catherine the Great, Pushkin, Tolstoy, Tchaikovsky, Pavlova, Sergei Eisenstein, Andrei Sakharov, and Elena Bonner. A full-color, full-page painting of each subject and a smaller illustration depicting a scene from his or her life- more attractively rendered in Russian Portraits-enliven each biographical sketch. Unfortunately, the books' dense format is uninviting.
