"Young researchers will find that these books meet their needs."

School Library Journal, Fall 2009

"Simple enough for science projects in middle school and sophisticated enough for high school science classes."

Washington Young Adult Book Review Group, March 2010

"Gardener and Shortelle have managed to impart physics and related information in a highly entertaining manner . . . Slam Dunk is a really excellent blend of sports and science and may make some students realize that it takes some brains and knowledge as well as physical ability to be a truly outstanding athlete."
