School Library Journal - Rita Meade, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

"This colorful, informative, and engaging series focuses on six beloved children’s authors. Each book echoes its subject’s best-known works, using the same font and color schemes as their bestsellers, so young readers can make an easy connection to what they are familiar with. After this clever hook, the content is strong and consistent, delving into the writers’ personal lives, childhoods, and how they came to be successful. Without being too dense or too sparse, the text has high readability, and the full-color photos are matched to aid in comprehension." - School Library Journal
