Skullcaps and Crossbones

Bought this for my 12 y.o. son. We'd just been reading about the era in Jewish history when Spain forced Jews to convert (or die) and then used the Inquisition to expose those who hadn't really converted. This was a great addition to our study, and in a format (graphic novel) that he loves. The book had a lot of interesting historical facts that I was unfamiliar with and presented another way that some Jews escaped the troubles in Spain. (And it was nice to find a graphic novel that he would love that covered a more worthwhile topic than his usual books.)

Plus, his 11 y.o. sister loved it, too.
