Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5-Quackenbush lives up to his reputation as a good biographer for young readers, providing a chronological overview of Ashe's life and accomplishments. The tennis champion's humble beginnings are described in a simple style. A sense of the man's personality and determination comes through. Historical events and people that influenced his life are mentioned. His courageous battle with heart disease and AIDS provides a positive example for all readers. Excellent-quality, full-page pencil drawings are included on every other page.

From Booklist

Gr. 3-5. Quackenbush presents a short biography of Arthur Ashe, beginning with the personal qualities and supportive people who helped him rise above racial prejudice to become the first African American man to triumph in the tennis world. Just as Ashe was more than a sports figure, this book is more than a simple sports biography. The last pages show Ashe as author and family man and acknowledge his experiences with heart disease and with AIDS, as both patient and spokesman. Throughout, the depiction of Ashe's attitudes toward racial problems in the U.S. and South Africa may broaden readers' ideas of the civil rights era, though the book is too short to give much depth in those areas. Appearing on each left-hand page, shaded black-and-white artwork illustrates the book, while tiny vignettes on the bottom corner of each right-hand page form a flip book showing Ashe practicing his forehand. A good addition to biography collections. Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
