A biography of deaf-blind social activist Helen Keller, told in graphic novel format.

Helen Keller: Inspiration to Everyone! tells the true story of one of history’s most courageous and determined individuals. After becoming deaf and blind when she was 19 months old, Helen endured a childhood of frustration and confusion before being introduced to Anne Sullivan, who helped Helen develop language and communication skills. From there, Helen became a prolific author, public speaker, and social and political activist who traveled the world as a champion for many causes. Full-color illustrations and historically accurate text make this biography an entertaining, educational, and inspiring read for those who enjoy history and graphic novels.
