Review:

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

Part of the Graphic Library series, this book tells the life story of Levi Strauss and the development of his business--Levi Jeans. The author sets the historical context of this story by first introducing readers to the Californian gold rush, its effect on the country s economy and on people s lifestyles. Following this readers begin to learn about Levi Strauss, his creativity, and his business ability. Being a graphic novel it tells the story by combining graphics with text, which makes the reading engaging and enjoyable. In a classroom it would be a great addition to a classroom library. The book could also serve as an informational text allowing teachers to introduce students to nonfiction reading strategies. The book includes a table of contents, a glossary, information about where to find more resources about Levi Strauss and blue jeans, a bibliography, and an index. The illustrations are vibrant and complement the text. As with other novels in this series the use of color in the illustrations adds life to the images being represented. --Childrens Literature Comprehensive Database, January 2007
