Nelson Mandela's autobiography, LONG WALK TO FREEDOM, offers a glimpse into the mind of a great leader, admired across the globe for his dedication to the struggles against apartheid in South Africa. Now the youngest readers can discover the remarkable story of Mandela's long walk from ordinary village boy, to his dynamic leadership of the African National Congress, to his many long years in prison-and, at last, his freedom and astonishing rise to become the leader of his country.

About the Author:

CHRIS VAN WYK was born in Soweto, South Africa. A writer of poetry, books for children and teenagers, short stories, and novels, he is best known for his best-selling memoir SHIRLEY, GOODNESS AND MERCY. Today he lives in Johannesburg.

Born in Cape Town, PADDY BOUMA taught at the University of Stellenbosch until 2006 and has exhibited and published widely. She lives in the Jonkershoek Valley in Stellenbosch.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2–6—Abridged from Mandela's 1994 autobiography, this picture book distills the basic facts of his childhood, his education, and the influences that led him to become one of the world's most renowned political activists. In a simple, yet effective manner, he describes the growing system of apartheid, and the unjust treatment of blacks in South Africa is made clear without horrifying details. The focus of the book is really on the man's life as an early activist working with the African National Congress, coordinating protests, and meeting with others around the country. The writing is clear, providing chronological detail for even young students new to the concept and history of apartheid. Full-page, color paintings accompany the text on every spread and depict crucial moments from the narrative in a way that both complements and enhances the story, lending visual structure. Similar in scope and detail to Yona McDonough's Peaceful Protest (Walker, 2002) and Floyd Cooper's Mandela (Philomel, 1996), this autobiography will be a strong supplement to any collection.—Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA END
