    I was excited to see this on the shelf.* Then I read it. Harsh, Jess. Explain. You can't put everything from the book into the graphic novel. That's cool. It's the trade you make when you mix in graphics. That's not what happened here. Instead, someone's jammed in lots of yellow boxes summing up plot points. This isn't at chapter starts or pivotal points, but in several panel boxes on each page. Instead of deciphering panels, you're reading cliffnotes surrounded by some pictures. Not fun.

If you're not analyzing the pictures to read the story, why bother? Mostly, this is a dumbed down illustrated version designed to cash in on nostalgia and libraries looking for kid-friendly graphic novels. Boo. The whole thing makes me sad. *The Boxcar Children rates second only to the BSC in chapter book series Jess as a kid loved. (Review of book 1 only)
