Overview

A compelling first-person rendition of a kid's experience being forced into war and the accusations he faces in the aftermath

"My name is Tamba Cisso. When I was eight years old, I lived in the village with my father, my mother and my sister. I went to school and had learned to read. I knew there was war in my country, but I didn't know that children could wage it." Providing a testimonial to one of the most heart-wrenching and chilling developments in modern warfare, this graphic novel chronicles the realities of hundreds of thousands across the world, kidnapped and forced to commit atrocities.

Reviews

"Although a work of fiction, this graphic novel accurately chronicles and presents the realities of hundreds of thousands across the world, kidnapped and forced to commit atrocities. TAMBA: Child Soldier is unreservedly recommended for both community and academic library collections." —Midwest Book Review
