THE PROHIBITION ERA: America's War on Alcohol
written by Jason Viola
art by Roger Langridge

In 1919, the United States ratified an amendment to the Constitution
that outlawed the manufacture, transportation, and sale of alcohol.
An entire industry moved underground as countless citizens
became criminals! How did it happen?

Get to know the activists who marched, campaigned, and swung
hatchets at the very real problem of alcoholism in the United
States. As a hard-fought dream for a better world became
federal law, society soon faced an onslaught of new problems:
clever bootleggers, corrupt enforcers, crowded prisons, and
violent gangsters. Read on to learn about alcohol and excess
during the Prohibition Era, and how we still grapple with these
issues today.

Did you know elephants are the world's largest land animals? Male African elephants can reach ten feet tall and weigh up to 16,500 pounds!

And despite their size, the more you get to know them, the more you'll realize humans and elephants have a lot in common!

For eight-year-old elephant Duni, family is everything: protection, stability, wisdom, and a ton of fun. But her idyllic life is beginning to shift and crack. The herd’s matriarch is dying, her brother has been wandering off, and rifts are forming between the ones she loves most. This year, Duni has to face her worst fear: Is her
family on the verge of falling apart?
