" I really loved this concept! And the illustration and storyline were both great! What wasn't wonderful, was the narration; Libby is a bully! She called Sam names and was rude to him, and I don't think kids need any extra exposure to that kind of nastiness. Not cool. " said.

"Readers can follow along with Lady Liberty and Uncle Sam as they walk readers through history sharing the story of Amelia Earhart.

Readers who are fans of comics will love going back in time to review the story of Ameilia Earhart and her love for flying. From her early childhood until the last moments of her life readers will learn about how she thought about becoming a doctor, driving across country and her being the first woman to fly across the Atlantic. Illustrated boxes with speech and thought balloons keep the storyline short and sweet but still provide plenty of information to get the reader engaged in the history of events. Side-bar commentary is shared with images of Lady Liberty along with Uncle Sam, presented in a modern perspective, sharing little known facts for readers to absorb.

Readers will love the illustrations that perfectly capture the emotion of the time. Vividly colorful and extremely detailed this graphic novel is a plus for students who aren’t fans of non-fiction. Readers will be able to spend time on each page to take in all of the details and hints for a better understanding of the story. Parents and teachers can use this tool to engage students, teach history, capture the eye of the non-reader and discuss this amazing woman and what she did to help inspire women. The back pages contain a glossary, resources, a timeline and more information about other women pilots.

"This graphic novel gives an overview of the life and disappearance of Amelia Earhart, focusing on her courage and daring as a pilot, but also honoring her generous spirit and kindness to the poor.

I liked the cartoony artwork, but it sort of looked hastily drawn. It could have been a little more polished. But I liked the bright colors and energetic panels!

This is a good synopsis of Amelia Earhart's life, from her childhood when she constructed her own roller coaster in her backyard, then through her education and early adulthood, through her growing fame as a pilot and many accomplishments, and following her final record-breaking flight until her disappearance. It does a wonderful job of capturing the spirit and enthusiasm of Amelia, and inspiring the reader to do amazing things!

I was interested to see that this book briefly includes mentions of her father being an alcoholic. It is only briefly mentioned, and still appropriate for children.

I thought it ended much too abruptly. I was expecting a statement about her legacy at the end to sort of wrap things up, but the book just says that she disappeared, search parties were sent out for weeks, and there are many theories as to what may have happened. The End. They could have ended on a high note with at least some mention of how she paved the way for women's rights, inspired pilots all over the world, and how people still love her story. But it just ended. I was disappointed in that. It left me feeling flat.
