Series Made Simple; School Library Journal - Alyson Low

"This series is a highly entertaining showcase of factoids set against a backdrop of rich graphics. What could easily become a gaudy presentation of silly information is an impressive production of cool artwork and bits of knowledge that will fascinate browsers of all ages. The one quibble: Kaelberer pretends to believe that pro wrestling is a real sport, failing to explain that the wrestlers’ feuds are scripted and their moves choreographed, thus presenting a somewhat misleading account, especially for the younger set." - Series Made Simple; School Library Journal
