Marshall "Major" Taylor: World Champion Bicyclist, 1899-1901 (Marlene Targ Brill) - This Trailblazer Biographies entry profiles Marshall Taylor, an African American bicyclist who, despite facing prejudice in racing and in life, achieved world renown at the turn of the last century. Following an introductory author's note, Brill's accessible, personable prose vividly relates Taylor's experiences, from the childhood trick-cycling gig that earned him his nickname, Major (inspired by his military costume), to his later triumphs as the first black world cycling champion. Darker moments are also covered, including his painful struggles with racism and his eventual plunge into obscurity, where he remained until after his death. Sidebars highlight American bicycle-racing history and Jim Crow laws; visuals include archival photos and ephemera. Although source notes are provided for quotations, many of which come from Taylor's autobiography, attribution is missing from passages that imply knowledge about the athlete's state of mind. Still, such dramatized segments add intimacy to the narrative and throughout, this inspiring life story will engage children, whether or not they are cycling enthusiasts. The useful end matter includes resources for further research. Rosenfeld, Shelle Booklist. Recommended for ages 9-12.
Marshall Armstrong Is New to Our School (David Mackintosh) - Marshall Armstrong is new to school and definitely stands out from the crowd, with his pale skin, perpetual hats, and special “space food” lunches that come in silver wrappers. He doesn’t play sports, and he doesn’t watch television. So when he invites everyone in class over for his birthday party, it’s sure to be a disaster. Or is it? Marshall Armstrong might have a trick or two up his long, “sun protective” sleeve. David Mackintosh’s story, with its bold design and sharply humorous observations, is a highly original take on the popular theme of the difficulties of being the new kid and making friends. Recommended for ages 4-8.
