Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A serviceable, simple biography of the famous man of peace who freed India from British rule... The author covers Gandhi's entire life... Delicate watercolors add informative details."--School Library Jounral

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
It's refreshing to find a Gandhi biography written for young readers from a distinctly Indian perspective. In thirty-two pages, Mitchell manages to convey the complex energy of the enigmatic man who took on the Empire and led a nation to its freedom. Some aspects of Gandhi's life, such as his childhood marriage, or his responses to Hindu-Muslim conflicts, have been rushed or glossed over because of space constraints, and in those paragraphs an adult narrative voice is unfortunately in evidence. But on the whole this is a worthy addition to the reference shelf. Mitra's watercolors are clearly inspired by archival photographs of Gandhi. Part of the publisher's "What's Their Story?" series. 1998 (orig.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-A serviceable, simple biography of the famous man of peace who freed India from British rule. The format will appeal to upper-primary or less-competent intermediate readers: one half-page of text and a watercolor drawing on each page. The author covers Gandhi's entire life, with emphasis on his profound belief that standing up against unfair laws and practices could be done through peaceful means. For Gandhi, this meant great personal sacrifice: fasting to near death, 2,089 days in prisons, and, eventually, his assassination. The delicate watercolors add informative details to the sparse text about events, setting, and modes of dress.-Eunice Weech, M. L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
