K-Gr 3—More well-known children's book writers are tackled in this series that takes on current and classic authors alike. Previously called "worthwhile selections for younger readers" by SLJ, the set covers familiar ground: the authors' childhoods, career paths, and best-known works. Photographs, pull-out quotes, and "Fun Fact" sidebars are interspersed throughout. While the writing is on the simplistic style and the offerings lack source notes, these are fun and attractive options for students interested in exploring their favorite authors.
