Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6 - These brief, introductory books are highly appealing and will inspire reluctant readers. Each one focuses on four amazing people who either defeated incredible odds or accomplished record-breaking feats. For example, Kidsfeatures gymnast Nadia Comaneci; a double amputee who completed a triathlon; a six-year-old karate competitor, and a 12-year-old sportscaster. Limits features a marathon runner, an Iditarod racer, a triathlon competitor, and a female weight lifter. Record Breakers includes Gertrude Ederle, the first woman to swim the English Channel; and Mark McGwire, who broke the home-run record for a single season. Odds chronicles Wilma Rudolph's triumph over polio and Lance Armstrong's battle with cancer. The texts feature a fair balance of women, minorities, disabled athletes, children, and current and past champions. The stories are triumphant and realistic at the same time. The books have an attractive design, with numerous color and black-and-white photos and an uncluttered layout. These titles will attract readers who are not quite ready for a full-length biography or the more advanced "Sports Illustrated for Kids" books. - Kristen Oravec, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Strongsville, OH

More About the Author

Kirsten Hall is a native New Yorker. After college, where she majored in English and minored in Child Development, Hall taught preschool, Kindergarten, and 2nd grade while earning a degree in Early Childhood Education in NYU's Masters program.

Hall's first easy reader book was written (and published) when she was in the 7th grade. Since then she has written approximately 150 early reader and chapter books for children, on a broad range of topics, for publishers including Scholastic, HarperCollins, Barnes & Noble, Random House, and Chronicle.

Hall recently wrote her first trade picture book, The Jacket, illustrated by Dasha Tolstikova. Published in October 2014 by Enchanted Lion Books, The Jacket has since earned an honorable mention from the Huffington Post for 'Most Charming Picture Book' in 2014. It was also selected as an 'Editor's Choice' at The New York Times. And it was subsequently one of The New York Times's picks for 25 'Notable Children's Books of 2014.'

In addition to writing, Hall operates her own boutique illustration and literary agency, Catbird Productions. Founded in 2014, it has already agented its first New York Times bestseller.

Hall currently resides in New York City with her husband and two sons.
