Reviews

"This book provides a look into the life of John McCain from his childhood through his presidential candidate campaign."

— Iris McKinney

"Junior high librarians will find this series to be a solid addition to their biography section. The tales about each person gleaned from a broad variety of sources show students the value of balanced reporting. The vivid color photos and user-friendly layout of the books as well as their moderate length will provide students with a thorough yet undaunting look at people they care about who are in the news."--- VOYA October 2007
