Gr 5-9-Providing biographical information about popular young adult authors, these titles offer appealing research and reading opportunities. In addition to including standard details, the books relate themes found in the writers' works to their personal experiences and philosophies.

Quality information delivered in a well-organized manner make these books worthy choices for collections lacking appropriate reference sources about these two writers.-Beth Jones, Shelby County High School, Shelbyville, KY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
