Enslow's Drew Brees Biography Celebrates New Orleans Saints Player's Career

Library ISBN: 978-0-7660-3831-8
Paperback ISBN: 978-159845-299-0
Last night, New Orleans Saint superstar Drew Brees shattered the National Football League record for most passing yards in a single season. He surpassed the mark former Miami Dolphin quarterback Dan Marino set a generation ago. Brees' remarkable accomplishment generated an unusual amount of respectful recognition, including the very rare sight of assembled media applauding him before a post-game press conference.

Read About Drew Brees, Enslow Publishers's new biography of the NFL star, offers young readers a timely, uplifting look at his inspiring life and career. Author David J. Torsiello's engaging work delivers the basics about the Texas-born, Purdue University-educated Brees. Enslow also offers a teacher's guide for this 24-page title, including useful activities and a brief assessment tool. The book is included among the six titles in Enslow's Guided Reading "I" series "I Like Sports Stars."

Read About Drew Brees is available in paperback from Enslow Publishers for $6.95. A library-bound version is also available to schools and libraries for $15.95 (a 25% discount from Enslow's list price for its library-bound titles).

Brees, Brady, Mannings Highlight Enslow Fall NFL Player Biographies

Enslow Publishers is welcoming the 2011-12 pro football season with new biographies of leading NFL stars. Among them are 48-page books on New England Patriot star Tom Brady and the Indianapolis Colts' new $90 million dollar man, Peyton Manning. Both titles are included in Enslow's high-interest "Sports Stars Who Care" series, in which each athlete's philanthropic activities are included in a discussion of their lives and careers. Paperback editions of each book in this six-book series are available for $7.95; library-bound editions are $17.95 per title (including 25% school/library discount).

"I Like Sports Stars," a new Enslow series for younger readers, includes a biography of New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, Peyton's talented younger brother. Both Mannings were born and raised in New Orleans, yet neither one has played for the city's NFL Saints. That position belongs to Drew Brees, the subject of author David Torsiello's 24-page biography. The Brees biography, along with other books in the six-title "I Like Sports Stars" series, is available for $6.95 per book (paperback) and $15.95 per book (library edition, including 25% school/library discount).
