'A Girl Called Madonna' tells the story of frankly the most amazing 'n' important female singer in the history of everything. Among the breathtaking revelations: * Madonna likes to sing and dance! * Madonna was very honest about kissing people and made other people realise that kissing people was a good thing! * One day Madonna drank a special potion called 'bitter'? it turned her into an English lady! 'A Girl Called Madonna' is part of a fairly amazing new series of ultra-concise and brilliantly illustrated pop biographies. Popjustice Icons capture the 'amusing' and passionate spirit of the award-winning Popjustice website: collect, as they say, the set!

A few days later I came back to the book and had a proper read-through. It was good, but not brilliant. I expected a lot more dark humour & Madonna references, so I was left a bit disappointed. Saying that though, there were a few bits which raised a smile, especially the first page.
Although it's not a masterpiece, I would recommend buying it. I mean come on, it's only a few quid, it's hardly going to break the bank, and it did provide me with some amusement!
I hope the rest of the series of books are a bit better than this, my advice to the author would be to think up more references to the artist, however vague, which
you could slip into the story (for example, in this book when they describe Madonna's success they say how 'Experience had made her rich', a line from 'Material Girl') Some more of these would improve it greatly.
Oh and also, if the series creator is reading this, please make a Britney one! :P
