Reviews

School Library Journal - Peg Glisson

"These books offer high-interest subject matter in a graphic-novel format. Historically accurate, each one presents brief information about the featured event. Yellowish-tan bubbles indicate direct quotations from primary sources. Alamo, Lincoln, and Polo are slightly stronger as stories thatn King Tut, perhaps because they are about real events while Tut is as much about a superstition as it is about Howard Carter's discoveries. And make no mistake, these are stories, based on fact and classified as nonfiction; there is invented dialogue, which is close to melogramatic at times. Thoughts and feelings are also fictionalized. Likely to be snatched up by young and reluctant readers, these titles work as hooks to lead to more in-depth information or as fun and interesting reads. Colorful artwork with strong black lines is competently done and contributes to a sense of time and place. Great literature? No. Shelf sitters? Definitely not. Peg Glisson, Mendon Center Elementary School, Pittsford, NY" - School Library Journal
