Graphic Stories: Abdul Sattar Edhi
Graphic Stories are a popular genre of writing in English as well as in many other languages, and popular in many countries. However, there were no locally produced graphic stories in Pakistan in English, Urdu, or any of the regional languages before the publication of Abdul Sattar Edhi. The richly pictorial presentation of text in this genre is fascinating for children, and effective in attracting reluctant readers to the world of books. Based on the life of Pakistan’s most outstanding social worker, Abdul Sattar Edhi is the first title in the Graphic Stories series published by Oxford University Press, Pakistan. This title describes the life of Abdul Sattar Edhi— one of the greatest Pakistanis—and has been written in a simple, readable style. It is enlivened by attractive coloured illustrations. This graphic story presents key events from Abdul Sattar Edhi’s life and his contribution to Pakistani society in a reader-friendly manner.
