I loved this overview of Lincoln’s life! The cartoony artwork is colorful and bright, with lots of funny details in the background that bring the story to life.
I think the writers did a wonderful job of condensing such a rich life story into so few pages, but still highlighting the most important and memorable aspects of Lincoln’s presidency and personal life. There were many details that I found interesting and engaging, as well as some cute jokes and anecdotes that were entertaining to read.
I only found one mistake in the book. John Wilkes Booth is described as having a brother, named “Edmund” Booth, but I looked it up, and his brother’s name was Edwin Booth.
I would recommend this book to readers aged 7-17. Any student of history would enjoy reading this excellent sketch of Lincoln’s incredible life and his impact on the American nation.
