    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...

    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...

    This is a well-done adaptation. It does not have the depth that comes in the novel, but it does have a similar feel. The art is true to the story, and it is a good either introduction to or enhancement of the original. ...

    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...

    Love that they did this in a graphic novel format. It's been years since I've read the actual novel, but from what I remember they seem to have gotten the heart of it. I think for someone who is reading this story for the first time, you must do the novel first. This book means so much...

    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...

    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...

    4.5 on the blog. The story itself was followed really well and the illustrations were pleasing and well done, with the exception of long shot views and some of the close up faces. I will never understand the variability of illustration quality many graphic novels and manga have in t...

    To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite stories. I first read the novel in high school, and then acted in a stage production of it one summer, have watched the move once or twice, and have revisited the book every so often. I'm very familiar with it, and I think it's a masterpiece ...

    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. ...

    A re-read of To Kill A Mockingbird has been long overdue for a while now, and it turns out this was the perfect way to do it. This version doesn't stray from the original plot and uses most of Lee's writing which makes it so thoroughly enjoyable. The illustrations are beautiful and rea...

    I loved this graphic novel version of Harper Lee?s classic. The illustrations and adaptation were perfect. I enjoyed it very much. It is upsetting that we STILL deal with racism and prejudice and see injustices all of the time. Things have changed a lot since Lee wrote this novel...

    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...
