Christine M. Hill is a children's librarian as well as a writer of books for young people. She is married and the mother of two college students. Her other books for Enslow Publishers include Robert Ballard: Oceanographer Who Discovered the Titanic; Ten Terrific Authors for Teens; and Ten Hispanic American Authors.From School Library Journal:
Grade 6-10?This look at the poet's life and times includes the same basic facts that many other biographers have recorded and does so in a clear, easy-to-read narrative. The text flows smoothly and is written in an engaging style that will hold students' interest. Good-quality, black-and-white photographs add to the presentation; the captions are largely informative with the exception of a portrait of Hughes with an unidentified statue. Although this book is functional, it is not as attractive or as encompassing as Milton Meltzer's more complete Langston Hughes (Millbrook, 1997). Far less intimidating than that title, particularly for reluctant readers, Hill's book is a suitable addition.?Marilyn Fairbanks, East Junior High School, Brockton, MA
