Product Details


In this exciting graphic novel, fierce, scarlet-haired Grace O’Malley grows up on the sea alongside her chieftain father in Ireland…Hart’s illustrations are vigorously kinetic, creating compelling scenes of battle that rocket along at a breakneck pace more electrifying than any action movie. While Lee and Hart’s previous volumes tackled more widely known figures (such as Joan of Arc and Robin Hood), discovering the legend of Grace O’Malley feels like unearthing a hidden gem. The tale takes place in the United Kingdom in the 1500s; all characters portrayed present white. Spirited, thrilling, and wonderful.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The exciting biography, the fourth in Lee and Hart’s Heroes and Heroines series, will encourage teens to learn more about O’Malley, pirates, and Irish-English history, but it will also make them examine the qualities they can expect from laudable leaders.
