Recommended for: Grades 4-6

This is the first in a new graphic novel history series called Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales.  One Dead Spy is the story of the Revolutionary War soldier, Nathan Hale, who was captured by the British and hanged.  He is famous for having said, “I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country.”  The story is told by Nathan, with comic relief supplied by the hangman and a British soldier.  The author picked a fascinating story from American history, and he tells it with a lot of humor, tons of facts and figures, and plenty of action.  If you like history and comics, you’ll love this book!  Also check out the second book in the series, Big Bad Ironclad! A Civil War Steamship Showdown.
