Lives of the Athletes - Thrills, Spills (and What the Neighbors Thought)

Kathleen Krull

Do you have a favorite sports hero? If so, have you ever wondered about what kind of zany things things he or she likes to do when not competing? Have you ever wondered what the great athletes like to eat, or what they like to drink? For instance, it’s a little-known fact that baseball great Babe Ruth relished the chance to wolf-down pickled eels and chocolate ice cream! Do you ever imagine what their childhoods were like? This fascinating book answers all these questions and many more you might never have even thought to ask! Featuring inspiring stories and wacky trivia about 20 different world-class athletes, this book by Kathleen Krull is sure to get young sports-fans excited about reading. “While readers will find out about the subjects’ most prodigious physical feats, it’s what else they’ll learn about them that propels this title above most other books published in this subject area.”—School Library Journal
