From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-- After an unsuccessful attempt to capture the humor of a typical Lucy sight-gag in print, this concise biography begins. Krohn traces the entertainer's childhood in western New York, her theater and dance training, near-disastrous health crisis, and her move to Hollywood. The rest is television history in the making. The author recounts Ball's role as an innovator who set the groundwork not only for comedians, but for women in general by becoming the first female to own a television production company. The final chapters present her personal problems and professional life after I Love Lucy . Appropriate black-and-white photos pepper this readable and well-paced profile. --Judie Porter, Media Services Center, Portsmouth School Department, RI
