Grade 3-5-A serviceable, simple biography of the famous man of peace who freed India from British rule. The format will appeal to upper-primary or less-competent intermediate readers: one half-page of text and a watercolor drawing on each page. The author covers Gandhi's entire life, with emphasis on his profound belief that standing up against unfair laws and practices could be done through peaceful means. For Gandhi, this meant great personal sacrifice: fasting to near death, 2,089 days in prisons, and, eventually, his assassination. The delicate watercolors add informative details to the sparse text about events, setting, and modes of dress.Eunice Weech, M. L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
