Publishers Description
A champion of the poor and lower classes, Mahatma Gandhi helped transform India into the democracy it is today. Young readers of this manga-style biography will learn about the key historical events during this time and how the peaceful efforts of one humble man affected enormous change. This book presents a time line of Gandhi's life—from his roots in a middle-class family in India, to his law-school education in England, his experiences with discrimination, and his key role as a leader in the Indian independence movement. Young people will be engaged not only by the story but by the brilliant color images and comic-book format. About the Great Figures in History series:Combining the exciting style of manga graphics with biography, history, and science, these dynamic accounts of great leaders are accessible and entertaining to today's children, as well as educational—each story is accompanied by a time line that puts the story's events in historical perspective. Visually stunning, this series is a beautiful illustration of important people and events, sure to hook young readers on history and the written word. Manga, one of the fastest growing segments of children's literature, is incredibly popular amongst school-age children and lends itself exceptionally well to the vivid stories in this series.

Reviews - What do customers think about Gandhi (Great Figures in History series)?

inspiring read  Dec 24, 2007
My son (who first read this book when he was 12) prefers to read comics, even though he is a good reader and can read just about anything I let him. He picked up my review copy of Gandhi and read it very quickly. He talked to me about Gandhi and his philosophy and said he thought it would be a good thing if more people, including himself, acted as Gandhi did. He then proceeded to reread the book several times over the next few weeks. He only rereads the comics he likes. This book made a big impression on my son, and for that reason, I think it's good. I think other children, especially those who are reluctant readers or struggling readers, will find the comic book format to be less intimidating and a fun way to begin learning about people from the past. Because my son loves comics, he enjoyed the cartoony, colorful illustrations; because my son loves fun cartoons, he enjoyed the framing story of characters from the future zapping into the past to learn about values by examining the lives of famous people.
manga style  Dec 14, 2007
manga style means this book is a glorified comic book. i wish i had known before i bought.
