Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8?A book tie-in to the A & E series "Biography." The text reads like a narration of the TV series, and the result is a breezy, interesting look at a pop-culture icon. Krohn details her subject's rise from stand-up comic to movie star and variety-show host. She also provides glimpses into O'Donnell's personal life?a childhood marked by the tragic death of her mother, and the fulfillment she has found in her two adopted children. Full-color and black-and-white photographs give some glimpses of the media star's early life and career. The book is well documented with extensive source notes, including a personal interview with O'Donnell, giving it a veracity and immediacy lacking in most biographies for young people. A comprehensive filmography and helpful index are appended.?Tim Wadham, Dallas Public Library, TX
