Series Review: Jr. Graphic American Legends "There are not many good
biographies about American legends available and readers will find this
graphic-novel series unique and interesting. The information about these six
trailblazing men...is clearly presented in large, brightly colored panels and
through dialogue between the characters and corresponding captions. Ideal for
reluctant readers and fans of legends, lore, and history." --School Library
Series review: Jr. Graphic American Legends
Giving basic biographical information about each selected American legend, a
timeline for the legend's life, as well as glossary with selected words from the
text, this series is a good starting point for youngsters who are curious about
these historical figures. The entire series maintains the same comic book-style
illustrations that fill each page with color, and words that are contained
within the glossary are printed in bold font for easy reference.
