||"Krohn traces the performer's life from his Indiana childhood, his rise to fame with The Jackson 5, and his solo career to his death in 2009. Factual yet descriptively written, the book sets the scene with eight-year-old Jackson about to perform in his first talent show with his older brothers. Accompanied by large, colorful, and clear photographs throughout, the narrative takes readers on the journey of Jackson's incredible success and fame while handling the more difficult aspects of Jackson's life, such as molestation charges and drug abuse, in an age-appropriate, straightforward manner. A wide-ranging look at the celebrity's life and legacy." --School Library Journal
