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"
