This is a fun and encouraging book, great for book reports. The staff of the Undefeated provide concise biographies of The Fierce 44 that deliver rich information about both the person and what needed shaking up in their world. Robert Ball's warm illustrations add to the appeal. Even reluctant readers may enjoy this book enough to read all the way through.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
