Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ginjer L. Clarke
For many young learners, it can never hurt to make history more palatable. The "Graphic History" series aims to do just that, and it achieves its goal superbly. Having had no prior experience with graphic novels, this reviewer was not sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised by the high level of historical accuracy, including direct quotes, vividly realistic illustrations, and abundant additional resources for readers who want to learn more now that their interest has been piqued, including the full text of the Gettysburg Address. The complex and devastating issues of the Civil War are understandably simplified here and the time line condensed, but different viewpoints are provided by various characters' dialogue and the important information is provided in additional text blocks.
