MultiCultural Review - Kathryn Mora

"Each of the stories begins with an illustrated showcase of the characters, and the illustrations contribute greatly to understanding the life of each real-life character. Reluctant readers are drawn into the story by fictional characters who come into contact with the historical ‘great.’ Designed for the interest level of grades 3-8 and reading grades 2-3, this new series offers a unique and compelling approach to a biography. Fighting Spirit: On the Field with Jim Thorpe takes place in 1920. The fictional main character, Howard Tucker, is a smart young man who hangs out with the jocks rather than the brainy guys. Ultimately, he gets advice from the football great Jim Thorpe about how to play in the big game. Muhammad Ali is showcased in another fast-paced novel about a sickly teen who only stands 4’7”. When he gets an opportunity to spar with the great boxer, his life changes forever. Hurricane Katrina is featured in Storm of the Century. Teenager, Ricky Thompson and his family are forced to leave New Orleans and are barraged with unbelievable roadblocks. Ricky documents everything with his new digital camera and ultimately helps save lives. In Hope! A Story of Change in Obama’s America, a graffiti-spraying teen in Washington, D.C., who is sentenced to community service on Martin Luther King Jr., Day, follows other community service workers to the inauguration the next day and realizes he has the power to change lives. Jackie Robinson, the baseball great in Dodger Dreams: The Courage of Jackie Robinson inspires a young man to understand that baseball is more than just a game. Included in each volume is a timeline of the featured real-life character, a glossary, discussion questions, and writing prompts." - MultiCultural Review

Library Media Connection, "Connecting Comics to Curriculum" - Karen Gavigan and Mindy Thompson

"These graphic novels cover African American history topics that support the CCSS, which state that college and career-ready sutents should have ample opportunities to "understand other perspectives and cultures." . . .These hybrid books combine historical fiction and graphics." - Library Media Connection, "Connecting Comics to Curriculum"
