Reviews

School Library Journal - Mary Mueller, Rolla Public Schools, MO

"…the authors incorporate adequate background information into the action-filled narratives. Drawings are well executed and attractive, with a muted color palette and varying layouts. . . .Sure to draw middle schoolers in; a first pick." - School Library Journal

Jewish Book Council - Barbara Krasner

"This series of graphic novels celebrates instances of heroism in the face of threats and possible death during World War II. . . .The storytelling is engaging and captures the tension of the escapes, while the illustrations make the accounts more accessible for young readers. While the dialogue is fictional, the escapes the books are based on are factual; the heroes were all real people. . . .effectively present[s] the scope of Nazi power during WWII for young readers..." - Jewish Book Council

Association of Jewish Libraries Reviews - Kathy Bloomfield, AJL-SSC President and forwordsbooks.com, Washington

"These stories are interesting, educational and totally engaging. The workings of the Resistance, the plight of Concentration Camp victims, the lengths to which individuals went to escape the Nazis, and the support provided from the local community are drawn and described in excellent detail. Slow or reluctant readers will find these to be compelling reads. . . .all excellent additions to any World War II collection." - Association of Jewish Libraries Reviews

SLJ, "Comical Information | Nonfiction Notions" - Jennifer Wharton

"...great additional purchases for nonfiction graphic collections and are ideal choices for reluctant and struggling readers. . . .“Great Escapes of World War II” is an excellent example of the best features of this imprint. . . .While the stories do touch on the violence and horrors of war, the facts are presented in a way that allows readers to think over the information and draw their own conclusions without bias. Readers will pick these up for the exciting escapes and find themselves reflecting on the difficult choices made during war. The art and text of these and other series from Graphic Library are generally uniform, making them a good choice for getting kids interested in various time periods in history or other nonfiction subjects, rather than a specific author or illustrator." - SLJ, "Comical Information | Nonfiction Notions"
