School Library Journal, "America to the Front" (Focus On: World War I) - Jennifer Prince, Youth Services Librarian at Buncombe County Public Libraries, N

"Vol. 60, No. 3; Page 56 In colorful graphic novel format, this volume chronicles the onset, physical effects, and social repercussions of the 1918 flu pandemic. Using simple sentences, Krohn describes the correlation between the pandemic and World War I. Vivid details, such as the use of kerosene taken orally as a home remedy, make the history unforgettable." - School Library Journal, "America to the Front" (Focus On: World War I)

Children's Literature Comprehensive Database - Kathleen Foucart

"The “Disasters in History” series shows historical events in a graphic novel format, pulling in the reader’s attention right from the start. Some parents or educators might find the format strange and perhaps a little irreverent for such topics as disasters; however, the information is given in a way that makes it more than just facts on a page to young readers. Instead of trying to process the consequences of the pandemic from several words and a few blurry photographs, in this volume history comes alive in vivid drawings and dialogue between both historical figures and everyday people. This is an excellent way to reach the more reluctant readers. As a basic overview of the flu pandemic that broke out at the end if World War I, this book serves its purpose well, and provides a bibliography in the back along with websites readers can go to for more information. This volume would be an excellent classroom or school library resource for older elementary school or younger middle school students, as well as anyone interested in studying history through this visual format." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database

School Library Journal - Peter Gutierrez

"Even though Krohn’s account lacks a central character, the story of how millions of people worldwide died from a mysterious virus is as compelling as the best fiction. Thanks to the images of artists Bob Hall, Keith Williams, and Charles Barnett III, readers will be effortlessly transported through the years—and across the globe—in this fast-paced tale.
