Big Buddy Biographies Set 8 – Booklist

There’s no shortage of series about celebrities, but then again, there’s no shortage of fans either. The volumes in the Big Buddy Biographies series have a decidedly pop feel with a star motif running throughout, brightly colored backgrounds, and bubble lettering. Each title charts the rise of a superstar, from his or her roots to megahits to life offstage.
