"Readers who’ve wondered how star athletes received their unique, quirky nicknames will flip for this engaging series. . . .Complemented by photos, the simple, engaging descriptions do a fast and phenomenal job explaining how these athletes earned their calling cards. There are so many weird, wonderful nicknames in each book (Mitch Trubisky is “Mr. Biscuit” and if that doesn’t pique a kid’s interest, nothing will), readers will want to grab them all. A winning first purchase series!" - School Library Journal
