Grandfather Gandhi - Arun Gandhi

When he was twelve years old, Arun Gandhi moved from South Africa to the Sevagram ashram in India to live with his Grandfather Gandhi (Atheneum, $17.99), the Mahatma. With cowriter Bethany Hegedus, Gandhi’s fifth grandson tells the story of trying to live up to the Gandhi name during the tempest of adolescence, and shares wisdom learned from his grandfather that cooled him down and eventually inspired him to live his life in the service of peace and nonviolence. Evan Turk’s striking cut-paper and mixed-media illustrations dramatically render both India in the 1940s and the conflicts of youth. Ages 7-12. Emily Ellerbe
