About The Book
Mahatma Gandhi inspired a nation and generations of social reformers with his emphasis on kindness and nonviolence—discover how one man changed the lives of millions in this illustrated and kid-friendly biography.
This biography of Mahatma Gandhi is presented in a graphic novel format, making it accessible and entertaining for readers across a range of age groups. After being named president of the Indian National Congress in 1921, Gandhi was instrumental in gaining India’s independence from Great Britain by using nonviolent resistance—and in the process he inspired generations of civil rights leaders with his example. Gandhi: The Peaceful Protester! recounts this humble leader’s story, from his youth in western India through his years as a lawyer and political activist who practiced kindness and empathy toward everyone.
