Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-7-These series titles point up both the positives of this high-interest, easy-reading format, as well as its limitations. Both books provide information about popular movie stars in just 32 pages, peppered with stock black-and-white movie stills and publicity photos. The language is straightforward and easy to grasp. There is some personal information, such as the fact that Julia Roberts is estranged from her brother and Sandra Bullock speaks fluent German, but the emphasis is on the actresses' careers, their movies, and the salaries they can command. The texts read like barely fleshed-out versions of the appended filmographies. The most serious drawback, however, is that no sources are cited for the quotes attributed to the stars or to people associated with them.

We gave this book to our 11-year-old Roberts fan for Christmas and she loved it. Cutting edge biography it isn't, but for younger fans of Ms. Roberts, it provides plenty to identify with and a few surprising facts.

Format: Library Binding
A decent biography for juveniles but far too short for anyone else (only 32 pages). Try Gary Fuller's biography about Julia (The Julia Roberts Story) if you're looking for something longer and better.
