Ten Who Rocked the World. Illustrated by Lisa Cohen. Julius Lester and Roxane Orgill accept the challenge and handle it admirably. In ''The Blues Singers,'' Lester, the author of numerous books for both adults and children, eloquently explains a very grown-up music to a very young audience. In his succinct profiles of 10 influential singers, he defines the word ''blues'' broadly enough to fit a gospel singer (Mahalia Jackson), a jazz stylist (Billie Holiday) and a soul shouter (James Brown), but it is clear what he is getting at.

Meet ten artists who "rocked the world" with their music. From the legendary Bessie Smith, Muddy Waters, Billie Holiday, Ray Charles, and . King, to Mahalia Jackson, Little Richard, and James Brown, whose music was inspired and influenced by the blues, Mr Lester profiles their lives, times and careers, and passes on the love of the blues to a whole new generation.
