Gr 3-8–These fictionalized manga biographies are appealing, but their usefulness is limited by their uneven translations. The books follow the lives of their subjects, often focusing on the importance of their creativity in achieving success. The artwork is practically adorable when depicting the subjects as youths, and continues to be a strength throughout. The lighthearted texts are often satisfactory as well. However, translation problems result in grammatical errors, stilted language, and statements that are incorrect, unclear, unsupported, and occasionally downright weird. Consider this line from The Steven Spielberg Story: “He debuted as a theatrical director with a movie about ceneted [sic] around escaped convict in a car chase called The Sugarland Expres [sic].” According to Edison, the great inventor went so far as to have “created a new civilization” and the newspaper he worked on was “printing eight hundred copies at a singly [sic] time.” Readers of Hawking will be surprised to learn that “People often refer to him as the ‘genius physicist' or the ‘physically disabled' physicist who has gotten closest to the secrets of the origin of the universe.”–Douglas P.
