...vibrant graphic novel, With Malice Toward One, instead drilling down to the plain, unadorned facts leading up to the killing. Person does his homework: The book includes a wealth of historical detail (the title is a play on Lincoln’s second inaugural address in which he refers to “malice toward none” and “charity for all”).
Mike Person's "With Malice Toward One" perfectly spells out what went on behind the Lincoln assassination.......A great history experience which proves once again that History is Cool and NOT just about "dead people and dates!"
“I wish Mike Person’s “With Malice Toward One” had been available before I retired as a teacher. I certainly would have used it in my classroom. Mike’s book provides the perfect way for students to learn about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Not only is it richly illustrated, it also includes a glossary and suggestions for further reading. The book is the ideal textbook because students of all ability levels can benefit from it; as the pages are turned there is explanatory text on the left hand side and comic book illustrations (with text) on the right hand side. For students wanting to learn about the Lincoln assassination there is simply nothing available that even comes remotely close to Mike’s book in terms of quality and educational value. Congratulations to Mike Person for producing an invaluable addition to Lincoln assassination lore!”
I just had the opportunity to review what I hope will become a welcomed addition to the small field of children's books related to the Lincoln assassination. Mike Person, has produced a great graphic novel titled With Malice Toward One on the subject. There have been a few other comic books done, but this one can serve as a textbook in classrooms also because it is very curriculum-based reader friendly. I say this because, as you turn the pages, the comic book scenario appears on the right-hand page with corresponding full text for that on the left-hand page. Smart teachers will recognize that the lower level students in reading will gravitate to the comic portion and get their history while upper level readers will take in the easy to read, well-condensed text on the left. The drawings are colorful and geared towards images that attract kids' eyes. Likewise, the text is done in a font that is not standard and jumps out at you. Teachers will also appreciate the fact that he has included a glossary of terms in the back. This is a standard requirement in most curriculum that I am familiar with. He has also included references to websites, books, and even travel sites to enhance the children's experiences. I will also be sending a complimentary copy to the supervisor of social studies for our local school system with a gentle nudge that each school should have at least one in their library - if not the classroom.
"We are pleased to announce a unique children’s book on the Lincoln assassination, which will also fascinate adults who were raised in the Classic Comics era. Mike Person has created a graphic novel suitable for grades 4 - 8 and titled it With Malice Toward One. Its format is unusual in that he prepared it for classroom use. The comic pages are on the right - hand pages with related text to encourage more reading on the adjacent left pages. Dialogue portions are highlighted so that the story could be acted out in the classroom. There is also a glossary of terms related to the story. It is being very well - received.”

Last Tuesday was the 150th anniversary of the assassination of President Lincoln. I was talking to my 5th grader about this event and found that he only knew the very basics: that the president was shot while at the theater by the actor John Wilkes Booth. I hope my son's middle school will at some point focus more intently on American History. In the meantime, I gave him a copy of Mike Person's With Malice Toward One.
