Product description


“Gandhi and Hegedus’ relatively lengthy text is alternately direct and lyrical. . . . Turk’s striking mixed-media illustrations . . . complement the complexity of the ideas being explored and illuminate the subdued action of the text.” ― Kirkus Reviews

“Turk’s artwork is stunning in composition and color throughout…As a vehicle for showing the human side of the seminal figure that is Gandhi, this is a valuable title for young readers.” ― Horn Book

* “The full-bleed spreads immerse readers and take them on the journey. . . . This handsome book asks a lot of young readers but carries important messages delivered in a personal and relatable manner.” ― School Library Journal, starred review

“An in-depth exploration of the connections between waste and violence. . . . As in the previous book, Turk’s mixed-media images create a vibrant, dazzlingly imagined backdrop for the weighty philosophical discussions at play.” ― Publishers Weekly --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
