i am impressed with this new graphic history series from Capstone. I'm often picky with the use of time-travel, but when it comes to children's historical literature I do consider it to be a useful device as it places the modern child and his sensibilities back into the past and its way of life. Here Nickolas has a habit of just touching something and being zapped back to a relevant time in history. This time he doesn't have to touch, but while at a football game with friends he mentions the marching band looks like a 19th century army on the march and "zap" he finds himself on the march with an army ... the Mexican army. A good start to this topic and we first see the issue and battle from the Mexican point of view and understand what they are after. Then Nickolaus finds his way into the Alamo and onto the Texan side where he is given small but important duties. Many famous figures from history are included as the reader sees through Nickolas's eyes what happened at the Battle of the Alamo. Decent illustrations, written mostly in speech bubbles with a fact box at the bottom of most two-page spreads. I found this entertaining and provided a balanced opinion of the subject matter. ( )
