About this title


From the interesting and intriguing to the weird and wonderful Odd Jobs: Sound Effects Artist is HIGH interest combined with a LOW level of complexity to help struggling readers along. The carefully written, considerate text will hold readers’ interest and allow for successful mastery, understanding, and enjoyment of reading about Sound Effects Artists. Clear, full-color photographs with captions provide additional accessible information. A table of contents, glossary with simplified pronunciations, and index all enhance achievement and comprehension.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-8-The eight unusual jobs in this high-interest, low-complexity series are bound to draw the attention of readers. Sidebars containing professional lingo and quirky facts, such as how fishermen perform acupuncture on fish destined to become sushi, add amusing details, and recognizable pop culture references (the NBA's Dwyane Wade, SyFy's hit TV show Ghost Hunters) make the books even more relatable. Unfortunately, these elements are not enough to overcome the series' many flaws. Short sentences three-to-five words in length make the text choppy, not only resulting in a lack of flow but also oversimplifying the subjects. Sentence fragments ("He works on live shows. So he can't make mistakes."), exaggeration ("Most Americans love baseball."), errors, and missteps are scattered throughout the series; most egregious is a photo of German soldiers huddled around an Enigma machine during World War II with the caption "Ethical hackers can help win wars." VERDICT Although the subjects are intriguing, the execution is flawed. Skip these.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
