    The first graphic adaptation of this American classic that I taught several times a day every semester I taught high school, also showing the Gregory Peck film version, which if you haven't ever seen, is a must. Fordham, a Brit, who also illustrated an adaptation of Philip Pullman's Go...

    This is a very lovely adaptation of Harper Lee's novel. The colors and art are best when it's not dark (i.e. the walk home after the Maycomb pageant as a ham was really murky). There are some sections where certain angles or characters owe a huge debt to the TKAM movie. What I found...

    I?m not a big fan of graphic novel adaptations but Fred Fordham?s stunning version of To Kill a Mockingbird brought that novel to life in such a powerful way, I?m going to recommend it to teachers and librarians as perhaps the best way to get kids to experience this classic story...

    I'm just going to discuss the adaptation as a graphic novel, because hopefully by now, you've all read it. (If not, please read it. It's amazing.) I'm not really a huge fan of graphic novels, although I've tried to be. There are great ones, and there are a bunch that I've loved, but...

    A faithful adaptation, for better or worse. (Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC for review through Edelweiss. Trigger warning for rape and racist violence.) My feelings on this are conflicted and messy: - How do you judge an adaptation of an existing work: on its own me...

    I know what happens in To Kill A Mockingbird inside and out, yet it's a testament to Fred Fordham's illustrations and skillful adaptation that I'm sitting here upset again like it's the first time I've read that story. Truly a beautiful adaptation of one of my favorite pieces of Americ...

    I think it's assumed, rightfully, that this is a review of the graphic novel and not of To Kill a Mockingbird itself. Just wanted to make that clear! First, the things I loved: the cover art is lovely and symbolic and the book is beautifully bound with thick paper and a spine that ...

    To Kill a Mockingbird: A Graphic Novel is a 2018 Harper publication. I?m not going to review the plot of ?To Kill a Mockingbird?, but will instead offer you a review of the graphic novel version of the beloved classic. I am new to the graphic novel category and am still ...

    Well. . . it's official. I'm in love again. This time it's a widower, a man in his late 40s. . . father of two. . . an attorney. His name is Atticus Finch. He lives in the Deep South, among an appalling racism that is shoulder deep, yet he has taught his children that being a ...

    1. The novel is my favorite book of all time and this graphic novel has become my favorite graphic novel. 2. I loved the pictures. 3. As soon as I started reading, it was like going back to an old friend. Scout made me laugh, Atticus made me want to marry him, my heart soared with t...

    If you are a fan of both graphic novels AND To Kill a Mockingbird, pick this up. This is a gorgeous graphic novel first and foremost. Fordham?s artwork is well done, very effective and quite faithful to the book. There are plenty of direct quotes from the book and in places that h...

    To my surprise, I?ve actually rated this higher than Harper Lee?s original; I?d attribute that to the fact that I read the novel in high school and haven?t reread it since then, so I tend to associate it with boring essay assignments and a sense of duty. I?m also surprised by...

    To Kill A Mockingbird should need no introduction. It is an American classic and arguably the most important work in American literature in the 20th century. I was thrilled to learn that it was being adapted into a graphic novel, which could make the story more accessible to young...

    Adapting a novel as universally beloved as Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD into a graphic novel is fraught with peril. For many students, Lee's compassionate and humorous coming-of-age tale is their first exposure to grappling with issues of racial inequality,...

    This graphic novel is a perfect complement and homage to the novel, and much closer to the original manuscript than the classic film. It is in no way a replacement, but an adaptation that should make both English teachers and students very happy. For the full review: https://paulspi...

    This graphic novel really does justice to the original book! This is one of my favorite books and I love the movie! Anyone who is a fan of this book will love this graphic novel. I have went a little overboard on the pictures I added so bear with me ? ...

    This is a passable adaptation of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird. Admittedly TKAM is my favorite book of all time so at first I was distracted and dismayed by the graphic novel as so much of Lee's beautiful writing was truncated and changed to fit the format. I thought the part with...

    Yeah !! Go ahead and scream and mock as much as you want but the fact is that i had never read this classic before and when on a recent trip to a bookstore i laid my eyes on this graphic novel, there was no stopping me. I mean having had the option of going through the classic in the t...

    Drawing upon some of richest source material in American literature, Fred Fordham delivers a reverential adaptation. While the art can be a bit stiff and conservative, the story remains as powerful as ever in this new form. I gulped it down in one sitting. ...

    I have been slowly going through this graphic novel. It?s as big as the actual book. I love the drawings. It felt great to read a book I know I love in a different way. I feel excited that my students will understand To Kill A Mockingbird so much better this way. It is so worth it to...
