Roller derby is an extreme sport making a comeback! With a history that dates back to the 1930s, in the last decade, roller derby teams have grown in number and popularity. Readers take a turn around the track and discover that, from hard hits to fast breaks, the action in roller derby is nonstop. Full-color photographs highlight the mostly female teams who dominate the sport and the theatrical quality of each jam, or matchup. Safety tips offer help to new skaters, as this sport can get aggressive fast.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-Through simplified writing and exciting color photos, these titles offer an overview of several high-adrenalin pursuits. Parkour limns the sport's development, highlighting the efforts of French founder David Belle and freerunner Sebastien Foucan. In a concisely labeled photo, Motocross explains the colorful flags used in races. Paintball notes that being hit by a paintball may feel like when "a rubber band is snapped against your skin." A section on staying safe concludes each book; both Longboard Skateboarding and Roller Derby note that it is important to learn to fall safely before moving on to higher speeds and tricks. However, there isn't much to distinguish the set from similar sports series. VERDICT Though these books are not particularly memorable, browsers and fans of these popular sports may be interested in them.α(c) Copyright 2011.
