Grade 5-8-These are, at best, mediocre biographies. Because the authors' sources were primarily Web sites (many that no longer exist) and magazine articles, there is basically no new information presented on these figures. The dull texts on Jordan and Hingis read like high school term papers, and the coverage of the tennis star is a hodgepodge of jumbled information. Very little is available about Maradona, the retired Argentine soccer star, and Goodall does a respectable job of creating a readable book. All three titles have a few poor-quality, black-and-white photographs.
