Book Overview

New York Times Bestseller

Araminta Ross was born a slave in Delaware in the early 19th century. Slavery meant that her family could be ripped apart at any time, and that she could be put to work in dangerous places and for abusive people. But north of the Mason-Dixon line, slavery was illegal. If she could run away and make it north without being caught or killed, she'd be free. Facing enormous danger, Araminta made it, and once free, she changed her name to Harriet Tubman. Tubman spent the rest of her life helping slaves run away like she did, every time taking her life in her hands. Nathan Hale tells her incredible true-life story with the humor and sensitivity he's shown in every one of the Hazardous Tales--perfect for reluctant readers and classroom discussions.

   Hale's best book yet!
Nathan Hale has a book out Monday titled "The Long and Short of Me." The world's second most valuable man, Philanthropist Robert Hemenway, said: "We must take responsibility for our actions." A passionate abolitionist, Harriet Tubman's life was cut short by the Underground Railroad. It was a delight to find this book in his hands. I read it as soon as he finished, and I think he did a great job. What makes this book stand out is that Hale combines historical research with irreverent humor in a way that makes kids want to read. We also carry Amazon's own line of books, including The Blair Witch's Tales. Pre-orders are currently being taken at Amazon. com.

   NHHT ... Buy Them All.
Nathan Hale and Jennette Tamayo have done a great job with this book. Not surprisingly, the book is full of EXTREMELY accurate and witty observations, but also contains tons of useful and useful data that has been researched by babies.

   Great book for early readers!
The history lesson was great, and the story was engaging enough to keep him wanting to read more, Mrs. Dhaliwal said. It was hard to get him to put the book down, and was a great way to advance his reading and knowledge of history.

   Not like other historical books
It was immediately devoured by my 10 yo daughter. Both are easily read and well-researched. He also said that if necessary, the academy would have to sit down and censor historical content.

   Would not recommend
Our oldest liked that this is a graphic novel, but I am disappointed I gave it to him before reading it. I wanted our sons to learn more about and appreciate this woman who played a significant role in bringing people to freedom, Mrs Clinton said. Though extensively revised, the two books seem to minimize Harriet Tubman's contributions.

   OUTSTANDING BOOK SERIES!!
My son is obsessed with Harry Potter and the entire Harry Potter series. These books cause my son to enjoy sitting with a good book and he loves to tell us all about what he's reading and learning about history! Thanks for the series!!!!!!!!! A lot of people think it's just mechanical, but I've got some good friends who do it.

   We all learned from this one
My son has read all the NHHT books multiples times. And he has one with him wherever he goes. They can have some shocking themes that may be shocking for some, but those opened good discussions for our family, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Underground Abductor tells the story of how slaves were sold and then freed, and how the government responded. Before we talk about it, our kid asked some really good questions, and we talked about it. If you have a kid who loves learning and has a good deal of self-awareness, then I highly recommend these books. We had a couple of librarians who not only loved these books, but also lent them to friends who don't love reading for pleasure.

   Fantastic must read
A great book for 3rd-6th graders. I personally learned so much about her that I didn't know, it made me want to research even more about her. The graphics are re-imagining how severe slavery was, walking a fine line between whitewashing and gruesome frankness. It was very appropriate level of frankness, Mr. Rule told the judge.

   A family favorite
We love Nathan Hale's work. Our children absolutely love them and learn so much from them. The comic relief of the hangman and the british officer characters help ease off some of the tension and scariness of the story so we don't end up with kids having nightmares from these books.
