There's a GN about whatshisname - Michael de Ruyter, but in Dutch. Also not sure if it exists in other languages.
It does. I only have it in Dutch, but they also published it in English. They've got a number of books, but the language in which they were published vary (well, other than that they're all in Dutch). Papiamento, German, English, Czech, French. Actually, they don't list the languages that the De Ruyter one comes in, but I'm pretty sure I saw the English version at the museum gift shop I got mine from (at the Maritime Museum in Amsterdam), since I recall spending some time trying to decide whether I wanted it in Dutch or English, or both. Amazon seems to only have the Van Gogh book atm:
Chinese history (4 volumes, and the last one has yet to be (re)published):
Joe Sacco has some books about Bosnia and Palestine. I wouldn't give those to elementary age kids, I think. I recently started a biography of Nelson Mandela, but I haven't gotten very far yet. On the other thread I mentioned The US Constitution, The Gettysburg Address, and Democracy (about the ancient Greeks). Logicomix, some book about Niels Bohr, and some book about the Manhattan project took place in the past, so you may or may not be into those.
I guess pretty much all of the above are more suitable for middle school and above, except maybe the Eureducation ones.
