This is the first of the Hazardous Tales series I've read. Super impressed and buying the rest of them for my libraries! ( )

Love, love, love this book. Author/illustrator Nathan Hale knows how to make history come to life in a compelling, entertaining, and slightly daunting way. This is the story of Harriet Tubman, someone who's exploits we are all so familiar with, you'd think it'd be hard to pull a new hook. But you'd be wrong. My daughter devoured this book, then started reading it all over again. I had to find out what was so alluring about a detailed history, so I started reading it and ended up devouring it, too. Even the backmatter is memorable. I don't want to mention too much about the contents -- you'd be much better off enjoying Hale's rendition -- but I will say both my daughter and I learned a lot about Harriet Tubman and can't wait to read more Hazardous Tales. I will also add that this book is not necessarily for everyone -- while it doesn't sensationalize violence or gore, it doesn't shy away from it; and if you are the type of person that thinks educational products should not be entertaining, you are sure to disapprove.
