Synopsis

Gandhi by Emma Fischel

Each title in this series tells the story of a man or woman whose dedication to their chosen cause led to changes that affect all our lives today. Each includes a vivid description of the world in which the famous person lived. The life of one of India's greatest historical figures is told in a dramatic narrative and vividly drawn illustrations, from his earliest beginnings as a lawyer in the then British colony of South Africa at the end on the nineteenth century - where he first became involved in civil disobedience against the ruling power - to his peaceful protests that led eventually to India's independence. The reader learns, through his life, the recent history of India, first as a British colony, then as a free nation. By the story of his death, they can also begin to understand the deep religious divisions on the subcontinent that still give rise to conflict.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
