9781617725746: The Rock (Wrestling's Tough Guys (Bearport))

Dwayne Johnson is not your average wrestler. Before he was known in the ring as The Rock, Dwayne played football at the University of Miami, where he was a member of their national championship team in 1991. And after The Rock became a superstar in the WWF, Dwayne kept busy outside of sports and pursued his interest in becoming an actor. Today, Dwayne The Rock Johnson is the leading actor in many blockbuster movies. In The Rock, young readers will follow this superstars career from the wrestling ring to the movie screen. Large, full-color action photos and an engaging narrative text will keep readers turning the pages. The Rock is part of Bearports Wrestlings Tough Guys series.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-Beginning with curiosity-piquing openers, these flashy biographies will grab and hold readers' attention. Writing with classic, dramatic sports jargon, Sandler covers the subjects' childhoods to present careers and includes information about their schooling and other accomplishments. The captioned color photos are clear, action-filled, and eye-catching. The layout is well balanced, with additional interesting factoids or definitions included in text boxes. Words in bold type are defined in the glossaries. However, there is no mention of the staging involved in professional wrestling, leading readers to believe that the sport is all about physical skill. The violence inherent in the sport is depicted and described. Stats and "Fun Facts" are listed.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
