"The coolest thing since Schoolhouse Rock." --Rachel Maddow, The Rachel Maddow Show

"Intelligently written, lushly illustrated . . . Hennessey interweaves the Framers' intent with contemporary battles over constitutional law, while McConnell colors history with masterful strokes. A civics lesson no one should miss." --Alexander Nazaryan, The Village Voice (A Best Book of 2008)

"Avoiding the didactic, the book succeeds in being both consistently entertaining and illuminating . . . A fine introduction to U.S. legal history." --Publishers Weekly

"[A] must-read graphic novel treatment of the history, meaning and evolution of the United States Constitution. It should be a staple of every high school history class." --Jonathan Valania, Phawker

"A sweet, quick, thoroughgoing history of the U.S. Constitution . . . You'd be hard-pressed to find a better primer for bringing the kids, foreigners and forgetful in your life up to speed." --Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing

"We the people can now appreciate our nation's founding document unpacked into easy-to-follow explanations enriched with stick-in-your-mind visuals . . . A surprising and effective accomplishment; highly recommended for all collections. Buy multiples for kids, teens, and adults." --Martha Cornog, School Library Journal (starred review)

"Before Obama is sworn in as the next U.S. president in January, let Hennessey and McConnell's The United States Constitution: A Graphic Adaptation be your refresher course." --Charles Moss, PopMatters

"Aaron McConnell's illustrations are brilliant in their effectiveness of depicting complex themes and ideas in discernable ways. The style is reminiscent of the political cartoons of yore and his use of iconography is clever and informative." --Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom
