Booklist Review of Amazing Moments in Sports

The Amazing Moments in Sports series presents memorable events in a variety of sports. The series includes individual as well as team sports and accomplishments by women athletes as well as men. The use of graphic-novel storytelling and colorful illustrations offers instant ap- peal for more visual readers.

Each slender book is modest in size, with 16 pages introducing and narrating the featured subject, as well as a few of related facts and several color photos in the back matter. Each story unfolds in text boxes and panels of illustrations, in which speech balloons carry remarks from athletes, coaches, spectators, and commentators.

Curse of the Bambino opens in 2004, when the Red Sox won the World Series, ending the 86-year “curse” that began when their star player, Babe Ruth, was traded to the Yankees.

Miracle on Ice recalls the upset victory by the U.S. hockey team at the 1980 Olym- pics, where American collegiate players defeated a group of seasoned pros from the U.S.S.R.

In Soaring to Gold, Buckley looks back to Sim- one Biles’ early years in gymnastics while featuring her triumph at the 2016 Olympics, where she won four gold medals.

Tennis Titan briefly traces the career of tennis superstar Serena Williams but spotlights her 2002 victory at Wimbledon. Recommended for young fans interested in sports history.
