Grade 4-6?These titles detail the athletes' early years and continue through their break into prominence and up to the present day. The information seems to be drawn from newspaper and magazine accounts, but is not documented. While extolling their subjects' virtues, both authors show that the road to fame is not always smooth. Full-color and black-and-white photographs, many of them action shots, enhance the texts. A chart of career highlights concludes each book. These series entries will be appreciated by readers who want to know just a bit more than is found in the "Sports Star" series (Children's).?Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA

Gr. 2^-5. Although it's marred by a somewhat dry writing style, this account of Julie Krone, a top jockey in the almost exclusively male racing world, will be inspiring to horse lovers and athletes alike. Color and black-and-white photos range from Krone's early days as a five-year-old county-fair competitor to her victory in the 1993 Belmont Stakes, which made her the first female jockey to win a Triple Crown race. The author also mentions the prejudice and discouragement Krone experienced from male trainers, owners, and other jockeys, making her success all the more admirable. Laura Tillotson
