School Library Journal - Jennifer Prince, Buncombe County Public Libraries, NC

"With clarity and insight, this series shows just how slippery the slope between fame and infamy can be. With a focus on the subjects’ motives, the authors present information without bias. . . .Bold, dynamic layouts attract the eye, while the colorful, high-resolution illustrations and photographs are perfect complements to the texts. Final sections encourage even more critical thinking and Common Core-relevant activities." - School Library Journal
