Item description for Nelson Mandela (Great Figures in History series) by Ykids ...
Overview Within the brief fictional framework of an alien searching for great lives on Earth, presents in comic book format the life of the South African president who spent twenty-seven years in jail for his political beliefs.
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. Nelson Mandela's heroic struggle to end apartheid in South Africa is treated as a true-life fairy tale in this colorful depiction of his orphaned childhood, his founding of the African National Congress, his imprisonment for 27 years on Robben Island, his triumphant ascent to the presidency of post-apartheid South Africa, and his 1994 acceptance of the Nobel Peace Prize.
