Editorial Reviews

The Graphic Library: History series puts a new twist on an old idea. Each slim volume presents an event in history in full-color comic format. The text is simple as is the flow of the graphic format. In The Salem Witch Trials, motivations of the accusers are not explored in depth in the comic portion of the book, but a list of theories at the end makes numerous suggestions. Each volume includes a set of further facts at the end as well as suggestions for further reading and suggested Internet sites. Overall the full color is appealing. The concern is that the covers have the look of "schoolbooks" created for research in school libraries, which will limit interest for older students. The length allows for little detail, making the titles good for introduction into a topic, but interested teens will need to search out better resources. Even the illustrations seem young. Perhaps the best use will be for limited English learners and younger teens who have severe reading difficulties. (Graphic Library: History).

The salem witch trials is a very well written book. It was easy to follow. It was based off of real life and it was about anything the girl saud. They didnt kill the girls but they killed to many people. it took place in 1692. great book for anyone who likes history.
