An amazing story gets told in ‘Teddy’
Lately I have read many graphic novels about historical figures. Each one has been a blast to read and makes learning about these figures fun and exciting. When I heard about Teddy I hoped I might get to read it. I was able to get a digital copy of this graphic novel and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for Teddy here:
Overflowing with his love of nature, adventure, and justice, Teddy dramatically illustrates the life of one of America’s greatest presidents. His many accomplishments ranged from charging up San Juan Hill in Cuba as commander of the Rough Riders, to facing down U.S. corporate monopolies, to launching the Great White Fleet, building the Panama Canal, and the preservation of hundreds of millions of acres of natural American beauty. And finally, to the vigorous life at Sagamore Hill and his immense pride in a beloved and rambunctious family. Teddy reveals how even the greatest of men is still just a man, and how even the most modest man can grow to be great.
This was a really fun graphic novel to read. It began simple enough with Theodore Roosevelt giving a speech to a group of people. Yet in short time they begin to take readers on a journey through their life. We see their childhood, and moments that drew them to government. Although things didn’t always go how Theodore hoped they might, he refused to let it bring him down. His fierce determination made him take some huge risks, but thanks to these his life would never be the same. Fans of this president may want to read this graphic novel.
