Nathan Hale is the #1 New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of the Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales series, one of which earned a place on the Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List. We were lucky enough to have him on our show this morning to talk about his graphic novel series and to meet some of his young fans.
Nathan Hale is taking history and turning it into exciting, non-fiction comic books. The Hazardous Tales series is a 100% nonfiction graphic novel series that consists of eight books so far. Nathan is a middle grade author, which means his readers range from 3rd grade all the way up to 7th grade.
Nathan says that kids gravitate towards stories that involve gruesome and horrible things, which is what a large chunk of history is. By providing beautifully illustrated, fact-oriented historical stories, it educates while simultaneously entertains young students.
You can pick up his newest release, Lafayette!, as well as the other novels in the series at your local bookstore or at his website nathanhaleauthor.com.
