This graphic novel is by Jim Henson! I just watched Being Elmo a few weeks ago and now have a new found respect for all things Jim Henson. It's a fascinating story told with very few words. It seemed like a dream.
I've always been a fan of the movie Great Expectations, but had never read the book! I found that in the graphic novel section of the library there are a lot of classic books adapted into comic books! I love the story. The illustrations are haunting, which is so fitting for the book.
This is a famous graphic novel, that was even made into a movie. (I still need to see it) It's basically a coming of age story about a girl who grows up in war torn Iran. I like that she is a girl who was interested in the world around her, yet still wanted cool shoes and talked back to her mom. It was a very real story. Great for upper elementary school girls!
