Aboriginal war hero
The Scout: Tommy Prince
by David Alexander Robertson
illustrated by Scott B. Henderson
A young aboriginal girl stumbles upon a soldier's memorial in a local park. The veteran standing before it tells her about the exploits of Tommy Prince, a Canadian aboriginal soldier whose actions in World War II won him the Military Medal and the Silver Star.
Prince's story is told in a mere thirty pages, but the graphic novel format makes it exciting and memorable.
A very affective biography.
