Reviews

? These books address a largely unfilled niche: short, highly readable biographies of contemporary soccer stars. The texts are printed over and around voluminous, richly printed photographs and include many pages of scoring statistics and league standings, awards, even a QR code to direct readers to a video of Zlatan's 40-yard bicycle-kick goal in a 2012 match against England. Frequent references to great players of the past? Maradona, Pele, Cruyff, Eusebio? lend the books a welcome historical context.... These entries are excellent? . ? School Library Journal

? High quality and high attention to even the smallest of details. Clever use of formatting and photographs hook the reader immediately! I can't wait to get these on the shelves of my library - they are going to just fly right off. ? Gayle Byrne, Children's Librarian, Killingworth Library

Readers will be captivated by the stunning photography. ? Michael Terborg, Librarian, Prince George's County Public Schools
