[Milton] reviews performances at the 2007 international competitions, providing more trivia about placements than even diehard enthusiasts might want.... Where the book shines, however, is in the exceptional photos by Gérard Châtaigneau, which show the glamorous costumes in detail never available to those watching on television or in an arena. On their own, they are worth the price of the book. (Carol Jankowski The Record (Kitchener, ON)
This non-fiction title is nothing less than stunning in its presentation. Full colour throughout, Chataigneau's photography is fabulous, giving us images rich in expression as well as movement. The format of the book is excellent... This title is a must-have for any library that has readers interested in winter sports and skating. Readers from fourth grade to adult will find it jam packed with statistics and the story behind them. (Linda Aksomitis Resource Links, vol.13, no. 4
Steve Milton shows you the best new figure skaters from around the world with stunning color photographs on each page, along with a brief biography.
