Presented in comic-book format in hopes of attracting reluctant readers, these biographies provide little more than an illustrated timeline of events in the subjects' lives. Missing details regarding motivations behind their actions and only vague references to historical context leave giant holes in these biographies. Reading list, timeline. Glos., ind.

Gr 35 These biographies fail to spark interest in the lives of the absorbing and exciting people they illustrate. The characters interact stiffly on the pages and are bland and lifeless. The graphics are flat and show little movement, action, or vibrant color. The texts give the basic facts, but the dialogue and art do little to enliven the stories. Children will learn to appreciate these figures from many better sources. Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT

Graphic novels aren't just for superheroes! Amelia Earhart has been plucked from history books and her life and accomplishments have been depicted in an informative nonfiction graphic novel. The subject's birth, childhood, education, achievements, and disappearance have been skillfully told with detailed art. Further reading lists, timelines, glossaries, and indexes make these titles useful in classroom discussion. Graphic Planet is an imprint of Magic Wagon, a division of ABDO Publishing Group. Grades 3-6.
