Mackin Books in Bloom blog - Ryan H.

"Grownups are always telling kids to “be careful” and “don’t play rough,” but maybe living vicariously through those that do is OK. This book is all about overcoming fear, taking risks, and “playing rough.” This adrenaline-fueled book covers activities such as BASE jumping, bull-riding, and Australian rules football, and also gets historical, highlighting jousting and gladiators. Fact boxes along the way give statistics and definitions on the different activities, adding depth and context." - Mackin Books in Bloom blog

"These life-or-death “games” will appeal to many kids, while others will be relieved that they just play soccer." - Booklist
