Pearl Harbor: Date of Infamy! Date to Remember! (Comic Book!)

John J. Cardwell

Price: FREE

This is one of the first comic books I’ve read, and I loved it! Jon Cardwell’s writing has a way of sticking in your mind. For instance, when I finished the book and went about my work, scenes and conversations from Pearl Harbor kept popping into my head. This comic book is packed full of historical content and is a great book for any “would-be-sailor.” It is well-written and has great illustrations. If you’re going to let your son (or sons) start reading comics, you should start them out with this one. There is no objectionable content, and boys of all ages will love it. I give it 5 stars.

HISTORY AS YOU’VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE!

REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR!

Remember this historic event, or learn of some of the true facts behind the bombing of Pearl Harbor through a mix of graphic novel and comic book narrative.

>>>So What’s inside?

At 6 A.M. on Sunday, December 7th 1941, 353 planes manned by pilots of the Imperial Japanese Air Force winged their way toward the Hawaiian Islands. Their mission: destroy the United States Navy at Pearl Harbor, the U.S. Infantry at Schofield Barracks, and Army Air Corps at Hickam Field. At 0748 hours in Hawaii, the Japanese struck mercilessly in their bombing attack on Pearl Harbor!

Meet Chief Boatswain’s Mate Beau Lynnott and the intrepid men of his gun crew aboard the USS St. Louis (CL-49), one of the very few ships to make it out of the harbor to hunt down the Japanese task force that assaulted the U.S. Armed Forces in the Pearl Harbor attack.

Although the tale of Chief Lynnott and some of the characters are fictitious, the details of the events of Japan’s Operation AI are true and accurate Pearl Harbor facts, including a running log of the bombing from the perspective of the USS St. Louis.

This semi-graphic historical novel captures, in classic comic book form, one of the most devastating events of the twentieth century in U.S. Naval history.

Children of all ages will enjoy the retelling of this most famous event as the brave civilians, sailors, soldiers, and airmen endured, and even lost their lives through, the horrors of “a date which will live in infamy,” the date which marked the beginning of U.S. involvement in World War 2.

Because of Winn-Dixie

Kate DiCamillo

Price: $3.50

As my ten-year-old daughter and I were browsing for new realistic fiction children’s books to fulfill a school reading assignment, we, by chance, came across “Because of Winn-Dixie,” by Kate DiCamillo. The title of the book (and the fact that it was new) influenced our purchase, but it wasn’t until my daughter and I read it that we realized what a treasure we had discovered. Both children and adults will be drawn into the story of India Opal Buloni’s tenth summer, when she adopts a big, ugly, but affable dog, Winn-Dixie, named after the Florida grocery store where he was found. India Opal, or Opal for short, is a preacher’s daughter with a fairly unusual name. Opal has some major life adjustments to make, after moving with her dad to a trailer in a strange, new town. While trying to break through the seemingly impenetrable shell of her introverted father’s feelings, she also has to wrestle with her own sadness, disappointment, and curiosity about her alcohol-abusing mother, who deserted the family when Opal was three years old. Winn-Dixie, a magnificent mutt who, among other talents, can smile with his teeth, is the facilitator of a number of new and sometimes unlikely friendships that Opal establishes over the summer, including one with her father. “Because of Winn-Dixie” acknowledges in is characters their shortcomings and sufferings, but the triumph of this book is how it celebrates friendship, forgiveness, tolerance, and new beginnings. (P.S. You might want to have a handkerchief on hand for some parts.)

Ann W.

The summer Opal and her father, the preacher, move to Naomi, Florida, Opal goes into the Winn-Dixie supermarket and comes out with a dog. A big, ugly, suffering dog with a sterling sense of humor.A dog she dubs Winn-Dixie. Because of Winn-Dixie, the preacher tells Opal ten things about her absent mother, one for each year Opal has been alive.Winn-Dixie is better at making friends than anyone Opal has ever known, and together they meet the local librarian, Miss Franny Block, who once fought off a bear with a copy of WAR AND PEACE. They meet Gloria Dump, who is nearly blind but sees with her heart, and Otis, an ex-con who sets the animals in his pet shop loose after hours, then lulls them with his guitar.

Opal spends all that sweet summer collecting stories about her new friends and thinking about her mother. But because of Winn-Dixie or perhaps because she has grown, Opal learns to let go, just a little, and that friendship and forgiveness can sneak up on you like a sudden summer storm.

Recalling the fiction of Harper Lee and Carson McCullers, here is a funny, poignant, and utterly genuine first novel from a major new talent.
