This installment of the "New York Times"-bestselling biography series tells the story of how Gandhi used the principles of nonviolence and noncooperation to fight discrimination against Indians in South Africa and to end British rule in India. Full color.Gandhi's peaceful revolution is the focus of this picture book, part of the inspiring New York Times bestselling biography series about heroes.

As a young man in India, Gandhi saw firsthand how people were treated unfairly. Refusing to accept injustice, he came up with a brilliant way to fight back through quiet, peaceful protest. He took his methods with him from South Africa back to India, where he led a nonviolent revolution that freed his country from British rule. Through his calm, steady heroism, Gandhi changed everything for India and inspired civil rights movements all over the world, proving that the smallest of us can be the most powerful.

This friendly, fun biography series focuses on the traits that made our heroes great—the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves. Each book tells the story of one of America's icons in a lively, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers and that always includes the hero's childhood influences. At the back are an excellent timeline and photos.

I dont think the text...

I don't think the text was changed at all from the small, picture book edition for younger readers and that's unfortunate. The illustrations are gorgeous, but there was an opportunity hereto go a little deeper and even address Gandhi's assassination and I wish it had been taken. It's physically beautiful but, sadly, the beauty is mostly skin deep.
