Great Figures in History Nelson Mandela GN (2008) comic books 2008
1st printing. Nelson Mandela's heroic struggle to end apartheid in South Africa is treated as a true-life fairy tale in this colorful depiction of his orphaned childhood, his founding of the African National Congress, his imprisonment for 27 years on Robben Island, his triumphant ascent to the presidency of post-apartheid South Africa, and his 1994 acceptance of the Nobel Peace Prize. Manga, one of the fastest growing segments of children's literature, is incredibly popular amongst school-age children and lends itself exceptionally well to the vivid stories in the Great Figures in History series. Softcover, 152 pages, full color. Cover price $14.95.
