School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-8-One Dead Spy begins as Nathan Hale is about to be hanged. He was not a very good spy. But in the hands of Nathan Hale, the present-day graphic novelist, he makes an excellent narrator. American history is hilarious in these lively, rigorously researched, visually engaging stories. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
