Who Was Nelson Mandela? by Meg Belviso, Pamela D. Pollack, Stephen Marchesi (Illustrator) is packed with lots of personal information that I never knew about Mr Mandela, esp. his younger years. Very interesting book about his life and the book is long too, over 100 pages with great sketches scattered throughout. I was amazed at how little I did know about a man so famous. This is a middle grade/teen book but adults will love this book too. I got this from the library but if I had the money, all these books would be keepers!
