Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 3-5. Sports and civil rights are both part of the drama in this fictionalized biography in the Childhood of Famous Americans series. Growing up in segregated Richmond, Virginia, Ashe encountered vicious prejudice, including exclusion from the tennis court near his home. Even so, he went on to become an international star on the U.S. tennis team, and he broke the color barrier in the sport. The dialogue, thoughts, and feelings are made up, but the history is accurate. Readers will be caught by the details of Ashe's training, his game techniques, and his victories as well as by his important, sometimes controversial roles in the civil rights struggle and the antiapartheid movement. Despite the series title, there is much here about Ashe's adult life, though the focus is on his public role. Illustrated with occasional full-page black-and-white pictures, this lively introduction ends with a short bibliography that will take readers to documented accounts, including Ashe's memoir, Days of Grace (1993).

Got this for an oral report for my second-grader. We didn't have much time so I read most of it to him. I thought it was informative and written to keep his interest.

This book tells the story of an African-American boy who hates the way blacks are treated inthe south. Arthur learns to overcome his anger by doing what he's good at - tennis - to break the racial barriers.
