[Wilmington NC, May 15, 2014] 'Exciting' is certainly not a word most
students would use to describe a history class. Rote memorization of
obscure facts and an endless list of dates is not a child's idea of
fun. That may change. Mike Person, author and graphic artist, has
developed a format that can make a history book exciting, engaging and
Person's new release, "With Malice Toward One", is
a highly visual story about the Lincoln assassination. The book
combines compelling text with the graphic novel format that kids love
to read. Each page of text is recreated in graphic form on the opposite
page. This format appeals to a wider age group than might otherwise be
the case. The text, reinforced by powerful graphics, creates a learning
experience that can increase engagement for both readers and for those
kids who gravitate more towards the graphic novel format.
does not stop there however. Little known facts regarding what went on
behind the scenes of the Lincoln assassination are integrated into the
storyline in a manner that rivals even the best mystery thrillers. The
end result is an irresistible work that is a history book, a graphic
novel and a mystery novel combined. The book holds strong appeal for
children, parents and educators.
"My goal with this novel,"
Person stated, "is to make learning about History a new and exciting
experience for children. I felt that the best way to gain a child's
interest is by putting a picture in his or her mind. I was always a
visual reader. Growing up I loved reading the classics in comic book
form, which I truly believe made me a lover of books. Children are
visual. I believe children learn and retain more information when they
can clearly make a picture in their minds of what they are reading."
J Ownsbey, author of "Alias "Paine": Lewis Thornton Powell, The Mystery
Man Of The Lincoln Conspiracy" stated, "Mike Person's 'With Malice
Toward One' perfectly spells out what went on behind the Lincoln
assassination.......A great history experience which proves once again
that History is cool and NOT just about dead people and dates."
