    *Starred Review* Ten terrifically told true stories demonstrate the wide range of subjects and formats available for young readers of nonfiction. This fifth anthology in the Guys Read series stars some of the best-known names in informational writing today. From Sibert-winning Steve Sheinkin's gripping tale of survival in the Sahara desert to outdoorsman T. Edward Nickens' celebration of extreme canoeing, there are thrills, gore, humor, and pathos enough to satisfy both eager and reluctant readers. Within these pages, you will find high-interest stuff like jungle tarantulas of French Guiana; a pack of brothers in Saigon, Vietnam; Jumbo the elephant; gruesome historical dentistry; and Hugh Glass, mauled by a bear and left for dead in the wilds of what would become South Dakota—and each is explored in either narrative or graphic-novel fashion. But there are also topics not so high-octane: poems about science, a biography of a blues musician, and an autobiography of a cartoonist. Selected, edited, and neatly introduced by Scieszka, National Ambassador for Young People's Literature emeritus, these appetite-whetting accounts are accompanied by occasional illustrations by Floca (not seen). You certainly don't have to be a guy to appreciate these morsels of fact-based storytelling and then beg for more. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
