Reviewed by Whitney, Age 12

Skating Superstars is a book full of awesome pictures, quick facts, stories and highlights about some of the world’s best figure skaters, including Michelle Kwan, Sasha Kohen, Irina Slutskaya, Emanuel Sandhu and Canada’s Jeffrey Buttle. Sports photographer Gerard Chataigneau has captured the most beautiful pictures of figure skaters I have ever seen.

Debbi Wilkes is a very good writer and skater herself. She is the author of several other books including The Figure Skating Book: A Young Person’s Guide to Figure Skating. She is also a member of the Canadian Figure Skating Hall of Fame. Plus, she is a former Canadian and North American pairs champion.

I think that this book is so amazing. Anyone who had ever been interested in figure skating or wants to learn would love this book. I personally love to watch skaters so I love the mini poster-size pictures in this book.

I give Skating Superstars 4 out of 5 stars.
