"With black-and-white line drawings and a layout that incorporates traditional text with touches of comics, this biography is engrossing. . .This extensively researched and passionately told biography is an incredible resource."

"While he is lauded as a hero, Mandela is also humanized, his mistakes given as much space as his accomplishments. . .The illustrations are sure to grab and maintain reader interest and enhance accessibility."
