Book #48

The series of GNs from the Center for Cartoon Studies is impressive to say the least. The newest title, AMELIA EARHART: THIS BROAD OCEAN by Taylor and Towle (Disney, 2010), introduces readers to Earhart as she is attempting her Transatlantic flight. Through the eyes of one of the young women in Trepassey, the village where Earhart began her journey across the ocean. Gracie is a budding reporter. One evening she dares to ask questions of her town's famous guest. In return, Earhart shares details of her life and her plans to fly across the Atlantic. Simple panels with bright blue accents elaborate the spare text. What better way to give readers insight into the life of Earhart?
