School Library Journal - 04/01/2023 Gr 3–8—Written at a second grade reading level, Versus follows company rivalries from across different industries. From Coke and Pepsi to Marvel and DC Comics, titles explore the history and impact of different conflicts, with an emphasis on the relationships at the heart of them. While these combative relationships were often complicated, the texts simplify them into an easy-to-digest narrative over four brief chapters for Hi-Lo readers. Page layouts feature one to two simple sentences per page, along with full-page photographs that are especially helpful for bringing some of the historical content to life. The end of the books include QR codes that link Booklinks for additional online resources. VERDICT With high-interest topics ranging from fashion to big tech to comic books, this series is recommended for late elementary and middle school striving readers. - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
