Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6 Up?This is an interesting series that focuses on the special chemistry needed to form a successful creative partnership. The books begin with brief biographies of each of the partners and a history of how they came together. Glassman approaches the history of the Beatles by focusing on Lennon and McCartney. Greenberg's analysis of the trio responsible for the television comedy "Cheers" is as much a biography as an examination of how hit shows are developed. The book follows the path that brought the Charles brothers and Jim Burrows together, and then offers insights into the development of the plot and characters of the show. The sport and art of ice dancing are clarified greatly in Shuker-Haines's book about world and Olympic champions Torvill and Dean. The technical information explaining the development of this sport and the requirements that must be met creates an understanding of its intricacies and an appreciation for this team's artistry. The currency of the information and the book's more reasonable length make this a better choice than John Hennessy's Torvill & Dean (St. Martin's, 1984; o.p.). The clear writing style and appropriate level of detail make these good choices for enhancing biography collections.?Renee Steinberg, Fieldstone Middle School, Montvale, NJ

Format: Library Binding
In the climax of their phenomenal careers, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean won the 1984 Olympic gold medal in Ice Dancing and set the standard against which every dance team since will forever be measured. This book is an invaluable insight into the training of ice dancers and of the sport itself. A must for skating fans and anyone who wants to learn to appreciate this symphony on ice
