Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4–7—About-to-be-executed spy Nathan Hale entertains his captors and readers by telling stories about U.S. history in this popular graphic novel series. In this installment, Hale returns to the setting of the American Revolution to focus on the early life of French aristocrat and Revolutionary War hero Marie-Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette. Young, passionate about the American cause, and endearing, Lafayette was accepted into the Continental Army when other French officers were rejected, because of his humility and willingness to learn (and because he was well connected and his wealth meant that he didn't require a salary). George Washington took him under his wing, and Lafayette's loyalty to the commander-in-chief saved Washington from a plot to remove him from command. The narrative pauses for an eight-page mini-comic about Benedict Arnold, the notorious traitor. Newcomers to the series are given enough context in the first few pages to figure out the dynamic among the Provost, Hangman, and Hale and will soon feel in on the jokes in the meta commentary. As has become customary in the "Hazardous Tales," accurate historical facts are made fun and palatable through the action-packed graphic format and a humorous lens. VERDICT A must-buy.–Kacy Helwick, New Orleans Public Library

Review

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Newcomers to the series are given enough context in the first few pages to figure out the dynamic among the Provost, Hangman, and Hale and will soon feel in on the jokes in the meta commentary. As has become customary in the “Hazardous Tales,” accurate historical facts are made fun and palatable through the action-packed graphic format and a humorous lens . . . A must-buy." ―
School Library Journal

"Hale does a tremendous job of telling the complicated story of one of the most celebrated men in history with facts and figures interspersed throughout the often humorous and informative narrative. His intricately drawn panels are beautifully colored . . . His precise linework and neat lettering make the multitude of thought and speech balloons in the easy-to-read panels. History lovers and comics readers alike will thoroughly enjoy this story of Lafayette and his quest for victory." ―
Booklist

"Hale (the author) yet again weaves a delightful and engaging narrative sprinkled with silly and scatalogical humor . . . Fans of history, Hamilton, and/or Hale's previous entries will be clamoring for this latest volume." ―

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Awesome Hazardous Tale!
By Amazon Customer on October 17, 2018
My 9 year old has been waiting all summer for this to come out after having read all the previous Hazardous Tales last spring. He loved Lafayette and is already rereading it. Thank you for helping my son learn to love to read. Can’t wait for more Hazardous Tales!!

Arrivato in tempo e in condizioni impeccabili. Inutile specificare che il contenuto riassume perfettamente ciò che deve, in chiave, però, ironica e leggera. Davvero molto soddisfatta.
