Olympic Stars – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
Modern Olympians are brought to life in these visually attractive biographies. An introduction provides a suspenseful account of an important moment in the subject’s life. The rest of the text relates each individual’s climb to Olympic status, with an overview of athletic accomplishments (but little on personal lives). Fine additions where sports and the Olympics are in demand.
