With its slangy prose style and copious photographs, this is an accessible piece of nonfiction for middle grade readers. I am a little unsure, however, whether that slang doesn't undermine the book's authority. I'm going to have to field-test this one on a couple of fifth graders before I recommend it for purchase in a school library.
