School Library Journal - Heather Acerro

"Each of these well-executed titles opens with an introduction to the mission, followed by background and historical information. The intriguing topics are then covered in detail, with theories and opinions clearly identified. Arctic Oil is a standout title as its authors present this hot-button and timely topic with fair coverage of both sides of the issue. Overall the titles clearly place the responsibility on kids to form their own opinions or to get involved in future study. The excellent black-and-white and color photos throughout are matched perfectly to the texts and well captioned. Good choices for reports and debates.—Heather Acerro, Allen County Public Library, Fort Wayne, IN School Library Journal November 2010" - School Library Journal

Library Media Connection - David Lininger

"These titles will appeal to middle school or early high school researchers in several disciplines. Every page has at least one color picture, chart, or other illustration. The subject matter and reading level might be a bit much for weaker readers, though much of the space is given to illustrations, and words are defined right on the page. Some of the topics are controversial, and the authors generally do a good job of presenting facts on both sides of the issue. Overall, these books will be useful additions to many school libraries.
