Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
Fantastic, well-written! Superb! This graphic novel is about WWII and has six sections. The first two sections, The Pacific Conquered and Turning the Tide, are in prose form and take us from 1940 to 1945. The next three sections are written in graphic novel style, and then the last chapter goes back to prose. The author provides a glossary and index at the end of the book. "War in the Pacific" includes information about how George H. Gay witnessedd the Battle Midway, the contribution made by American Seaman James J. Fahay, and the achievement made by Frank Walker of the U.S. Marines. I know this is a graphic novel, but it is nonfiction and the information given could certainly be used as a research source for students when writing a paper. This book is part of a series and after reading this one, I know I want the others. This is perfect for school or personal libraries. The illustrations are remarkable and very realistic. It is a book that will be enjoyed by both boys and girls and would make a great gift for any history buff. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs
