The page layouts are highly appealing, with full-color photographs and bright graphics for captions and different sections. . . .Written at a third grade reading level and appropriate for struggling middle and high school readers, these superior nonfiction titles stand out with their attention to detail and captivating narratives." - School Library Journal
