Walk the long road to freedom with Nelson Mandela—one of the 20th century's shining beacons of peaceful protest.

Nelson Mandela is one of the most inspiring figures in modern history. For 27 years he was a “prisoner of conscience”—a civil rights leader unjustly imprisoned for his struggle against apartheid, South Africa’s institutionalized racism. Mandela’s nonviolent fight for equality for his people rallied the world to his cause, and proved that good will and a positive gathering of nations can indeed topple oppressive governments.

Featuring bold, vibrant art, no other picture book so thoroughly covers Nelson’s entire life; from childhood, through his time in prison, to his later years. Mother and daughter Malcah Zeldis and Yona Zeldis McDonough have teamed up to create a moving tribute introducing Nelson Mandela’s “long road to freedom” to a new generation—a hero who helped free an entire nation.

But the Spider -- well, the Spider is a model of perfect depravity, lolling and leering in a quilted smoking jacket and fez, his feet propped on that footstool, a copy of ''The Joy of Cooking Bugs'' at his elbow.
