Book Description

April 10 2012 Biographical Comic Series
Reads L to R (Western Style) for all audiences.

The lives of great figures in history are full of inspiring and moving episodes. Young people especially can learn from these stories, gaining hope, courage, and even hints on how to live their own lives. Children everywhere benefit from reading about the lives of heroic achievers, and indeed, these stories are an important part of their education and growth.

Shogakukan Biographical Comics is a series of biographies of inspirational historical figures in an easy-to-read manga format. These books are as fun to read as any manga, but the stories they tell are based entirely on historical fact. Every volume includes a map and a historical timeline, rounding out a package that teaches even as it entertains.

With a population of over 14 million, Kolkata (Calcutta) is the third largest city in India. Of that 15 million, over four hundred thousand people live on the streets. In the poorest neighborhood of Kolkata, a Catholic nun from Macedonia named Mother Teresa gave love and a helping hand to the people who lived there. This is the story of a remarkable woman who devoted her life to the poor in a land far from her birthplace and inspired the entire world: Mother Teresa, recipient of the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize.

"Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.” —Mother Teresa
