Gr 3-5--While these biographies include information that may be of interest to elementary students, the accompanying pictures will confuse them as most are unrelated to the authors' lives or careers. The chapter on Rylant's early years is illustrated with a reproduction of Ulysses S. Grant, a photo of West Virginia coal miners, and a photo of Robert F. Kennedy. In DiCamillo, photos include two boys swimming in Florida, children playing in the snow in Minneapolis, and a photo of an unidentified woman holding a copy of The Tale of Despereaux with a caption that reads, "In 2008, an animated movie of The Tale of Despereaux was released." The unfortunate presentations diminish the usefulness of the biographical information.--Anne L. Tormohlen, Deerfield Elementary School, Lawrence, KS[Page 117].
