Editorial Reviews

Libby (Lady Liberty) and Sam (Uncle Sam) act as historical guides and comic relief in this graphic novel biography of Amelia Earhart. From building a backyard roller coaster as a kid to working as a nurse’s aide during WWI and embarking on early flying adventures, Earhart seemed destined to become a record-breaking aviator. Buckley blends historical context and intriguing biographical details (Earhart once drove across the country with her mother), creating an appealing introduction to this larger-than-life inspiration. Tindal’s bold-lined artwork moves the story at a brisk pace with effective shifts in panel sizes and perspectives. Several pages of useful resources close this inviting series entry. Also available: Alexander Hamilton: The Fighting Founding Father!, Martin Luther King Jr.: Voice for Equality!, and Abraham Lincoln: Defender of the Union! Ages 8–12. (Mar.)
