About the Author:

Jennifer Fandel is a Capstone Author

Review:

Grabbing the visual learner s attention, Fandel is writing for the Graphic Library, a series, a new graphic novel approach for non-fiction. The book uses a comic book format with brief narrative boxes and short, semi-punchy dialogue in balloons. This book is not a biography but a piece of the inventor s life. In this case, Alexander Graham Bell struggles with his understanding of how ears work and fights the advice of his backers to keep working on improving telegraph. Because of the format the text is minimal, even as the story covers a fair number of details. The book s most dramatic moment comes when Bell and his assistant Watson set up the new telephone within the house. Bell says into the speaker Mr. Watson, come here. I want you. And Watson is shown startled by the sound coming from the box. The illustrations are good, accurately showing snapshot-like images of the appropriate time period. They are not as exciting as, say, Spiderman, but they move the reader through the story. The vocabulary is not simple, but there are so few words and so many pictures that this works as a high-low book. Back matter includes a Glossary, a Read More section, a Bibliography, an Index, and a list of Internet Sites. The sites are maintained on Capstone s Facthound Site, where URLs are checked to make sure they are both age appropriate and current. --Children's Literature Comprehensive Database, July 2007

This new graphic nonfiction series offers biographical treatments that highlight a technological breakthrough or innovation. Though produced by various illustrators, titles are visually similar: enticing covers, dynamic fonts, bold colors, and vibrant illustrations. Comic book-style word balloons feature fairly sophisticated vocabulary and occasional quotes or other primary source material. Each selection includes titled chapters, a table of contents, summary fact pages, further reading suggestions, and recommended Internet sites. There is close correlation between the dialogue and depicted actions and illustrations, which will provide visual reinforcement for struggling readers. These deceptively slim volumes convey a tremendous amount of information and vocabulary, and should attract attention from reluctant and enthusiastic readers alike. Bibliography. Glossary. Index. Recommended. --Library Media Connection; Vol. 25, No. 7; Pages 83-84, April 2007
