Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-7-Rutledge profiles eight stars in each sport. The athletes are all accorded exactly six pages and three full-color photographs; boxed insets contain personal information, career highlights, and a quote. While both titles stress overcoming obstacles on the path to success, Tennis is the livelier of the two. It includes candid discussions of the troubled family relationships that seem to be endemic in big-time tennis. An example of the sometimes pithy style is this description of the mother of 1950s star Maureen Connolly: "[She] became the first in a long and unpleasant line of pathetic, overbearing tennis parents." While students doing more than a cursory report on any of these individuals will require supplementary materials, these attractively packaged and well-written books should find a ready audience among the growing number of youngsters following women's professional sports.
