    The Old Testament story of Daniel’s unshakable faith in God is charmingly retold with LEGO dioramas in this delightful children’s book. 
     
    Daniel has been ordered, along with the other subjects of King Darius’s Persian Empire, to pray to no other god or man but the king for a whole month. But Daniel continues to pray to God, ignoring the official edict and making King Darius quite mad. Determined to see Daniel pay for not following his order, the king has him thrown into a den of ferocious lions, where he is sure to be eaten. But the next morning, when onlookers come to roll away the stone sealing the den and to see what’s become of the prophet, they find Daniel completely unharmed! 
     
    The story of Daniel and the lions is a powerful tale of unalterable faith in God. Now, author and master LEGO builder Brendan Powell Smith brings this incredible story to life with scenes meticulously crafted in LEGOs.

Featuring the true exploits of soldiers, spies, pilots, sailors and many others, these stories, all based on interviews with these heroes themselves or their descendants, offer a unique, personal insight into the Second World War that no conventional history book can ever hope to match. “With accounts of life on a variety of fronts this is a valuable introduction to life during the Second World War for younger readers . . . In a slim volume he manages to pack a lot in, allowing the reader a taste of a wide range of views and experiences, and never succumbing to a simplistic goodies versus baddies take on things . . . the heart of the stories themselves is surely universal, reminding us that war is a multi-faceted business affecting different people in all sorts of different ways.” —Daily Record

    This biography for young readers examines the life of a brilliant lawyer who successfully argued the case that ended legal racial segregation in America. 
     
    Thurgood Marshall, the great grandson of a slave, was born at a time when African Americans were denied equal rights in America. Segregation was legal. Lynching was common. In some places, African Americans were entirely excluded from public life; they were forbidden to enter public parks and museums or use public swimming pools and restrooms. 
     
    After being denied admission to the University of Maryland Law School because of his race, Marshall enrolled at Howard University. He graduated first in his class and set out as a young lawyer determined to achieve equality for all Americans. Here is the story of how he did it—how he devised his legal strategy for expanding “we the people” to include all people. 
     
    Thurgood Marshall explores the life of the brilliant lawyer who successfully argued the case that ended legal racial segregation in America, following his childhood in Baltimore to his trailblazing career as a civil rights lawyer, and finally his years as a United States Supreme Court justice. 
     
    This book includes a timeline, excerpts of Marshall’s writings, source notes, a bibliography, and an index. 
     
    “Provides a well-rounded look not only at the life of Marshall, but at the events in the world that shaped him into the man he was, and how he in turn helped shape the world for future generations.” —School Library Connection
