    This is my first exposure to the classics illustrated deluxe series which dates in some form or other back to the 15 cent comic books my 70-year old father used to read as a kid. He had them all: Ivanhoe, Treasure Island, Last of the Mohicans, etc, and claims it gave him a good leg up on literature classes in high school. My 8 year old son enjoyed this comic book adaption of Tom Sawyer. (He prefers graphic novels above all other forms at this point) The manga-influenced drawing style is visually This is my first exposure to the classics illustrated deluxe series which dates in some form or other back to the 15 cent comic books my 70-year old father used to read as a kid.

My 8 year old son enjoyed this comic book adaption of Tom Sawyer. (He prefers graphic novels above all other forms at this point) The manga-influenced drawing style is visually appealing and the story translates quite well to a comic-book retelling. My only complaint is that the illustrator made some of the narrative un-necessarily difficult to follow. If he added a few more panels to fill in the narrative gaps, it would have been a lot easier for a kid to understand the plot. Even the famous whitewashing-the-fence scene skipped by too quickly in a couple panels and I had to explain exactly what just happened. Overall, a very good adaption. We will read more of these.

    Summary This graphic novel depicts the adventures of a boy name Tom Sawyer with his friends such as Huckleberry Finn. It takes place back in Missouri in the 1800's. Tom is the protagonist and tells the story from his first person point of view. The main plot of the story is of Tom's not so well behaved antics and how they tend to bring him into trouble. The illustrations of this book are very clear and somewhat graphic. In a scene where a dead body is I found it a bit gruesome. The boxes in wh Summary This graphic novel depicts the adventures of a boy name Tom Sawyer with his friends such as Huckleberry Finn. It takes place back in Missouri in the 1800's. Tom is the protagonist and tells the story from his first person point of view. The main plot of the story is of Tom's not so well behaved antics and how they tend to bring him into trouble. The illustrations of this book are very clear and somewhat graphic. In a scene where a dead body is I found it a bit gruesome. The boxes in which to follow the text are numerous and sometimes hard to follow. The texts lie in text bubbles with the comic. The illustrations help us to really see what the time period dress, buildings, and such looked like. Response I really dislikes this novel. It to me was fairly boring. It was hard to follow all the different boxes of the strip and I found myself get lost a lot. There were points in the novel where I was confused as to what is going on because it seemed Tom was having a flashback. I also wasn't sure if his flashback was something that really happened because of his lying and overactive imagination. This is not a good children's book for a few reasons. It does have a child protagonist, but I feel that is one of the only good qualities. The protagonist is a bad role model and may be a vessel for kids to use to act out. The book uses many absurd words or time period words that it confuses me at points. There are also points where the time changes and it confusing to me because I do not know what is going on. The text and style of the comic strips are very hard to follow. Classroom Connection. I would have students read this novel and it's traditional counter part. This will expose them to two different types of text. Afterwords I would have them write a persuasive essay telling ms in detail which novel should be the required text to read for school and why. This will strengthen their writing skills for tests such as ISTEP, SAT's, etc. Text Complexity The interest level of this is grades 6-8 and can be read aloud to students in these grades. It should be able to be read in the ninth month of fifth grade. Its guided reading level is Z. It has a lexile of 950.
