Abraham Lincoln was born in a one-room log cabin in 1809. It looked like he would be a simple farmer, but Abe loved books and read anything he could get his hands on. In time, he became a successful lawyer and started getting attention as a politician. Known as a brilliant speaker, Abe impressed enough people to become the sixteenth president in 1861. Unfortunately, the country was heading for civil war. The issue of slavery divided the North and South, and soon President Lincoln faced the greatest emergency in American history. Despite facing many personal tragedies and dealing with one problem on the battlefields after another, Lincoln stood tall and strong-and saved the union. This graphic retelling of Lincoln’s remarkable life will fascinate young readers.

About the Author

Gary Jeffrey, from Clacton on-Sea, Essex, was a boy who grew up wanting to be an artist. Which worked okay for ten years until the pressing needs of a burgeoning family forced the young dreamer to up and get a job. He ended up working as a graphic designer for a small nonfiction children’s book publisher in London. Part of his job was adapting biographies and history into comics. Over the course of a decade writing and storyboarding these comics he grew to love the medium and became excited by its possibilities.
