" tells the history of the civil war through people who own/work at one plantation in the south. good supplement for elementary students/whenever kids first learn about the civil war " said.

" A historical fiction graphic novel.An epilogue in the back of the book explains what it true and what is fiction. AR: unknown " said.

" The story starts off slow, but picks up after a couple of chapters. Frankly, it's a bit crazy that anyone would find the story plausible. I did like how the author notes at the end what was fiction in the story. The illusrations are standard fare. I honestly didn't find anything in them worth noting. C- rating. " said.

" Graphic novel historical fiction set during the Civil War and told from the perspective of an escaped slave who ends up joining the Union army. The point-of-view is interesting and no punches are pulled in depicting the brutalities of slavery but the story has too many implausibilities. An epilogue explains what's fact and what's fiction. Something to offer to reluctant readers. " said.

" I didn't want to like this, but I did. I like the idea of graphic novels teaching about historical events a LOT - even as an adult I found myself nodding and being surprised by new facts that I never knew. That being said, some of it is WAY confusing for even upper elementary kids. The whole introduction was extremely wordy and it might lose kids within the first few pages. I like the idea better than the book, but it was good. " said.

"A few weeks ago when my coworkers and I were working on iBrowse in a department meeting, we were talking about a nonfiction graphic novel about the Oregon Trail -- and this book's cover popped up in my head. I still haven't found (or remembered the title of) the Oregon Trail graphic novel I was thinking this book was... but I know it's somewhere in our collection. (And no. It's not with the Oregon Trail books. I think we ended up putting it in fiction.) Anyway, this was a good, fast-paced historical graphic novel." said.

" This wasn't my favorite book. I found it hard to follow along while I was reading the speech bubbles. This may be a good read to someone that enjoys reading comic books. I think this book did give the reader a clearer reason for the Civil War though. The facts and fiction epilogue helped clarify the events within the book. " said.

" tells the history of the civil war through people who own/work at one plantation in the south. good supplement for elementary students/whenever kids first learn about the civil war " said.
