Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 09/01/2022 The Who Was series began with four biographies published in 2002. Now part of the Who HQ series (6 new titles) (including What Was? and other subsets), it’s still going strong. These recent volumes present a variety of topics, but they share the same kid-friendly look, with quirky, inviting cover art, wide-spaced lines of text, and attractive, black-and-white line drawings. The nonfiction narrative is simply written, straightforward, and well paced, while illustrated sidebars fill in relevant historical information. Who Was Johnny Cash? chronicles the life of Southern singer-songwriter Johnny Cash, who overcame drug addiction and forged a successful career performing country, folk, rockabilly, blues, and gospel music. Highly popular with young readers, this informative series takes on some challenging topics and presents them in a responsible, very readable way. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
