A haunting portrait of race and class, innocence and injustice, hypocrisy and heroism, tradition and transformation in the Deep South of the 1930s, Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird remains as important today as it was upon its initial publication in 1960, during the turbulent years of the Civil Rights movement. Now, this most beloved and acclaimed novel is reborn for a new age as a gorgeous graphic novel. Scout, Jem, Boo Radley, Atticus Finch, and the small town of Maycomb, Alabama, are all captured in vivid and moving illustrations by artist Fred Fordham.

I believe that this novel is a great novel. It has won a Pulitzer Prize. It helps us understand what it's like to stand in someone's shoes for once. It displays a lesson of morality and kindness towards others. It also teaches that segregation is a really vicious thing and shouldn't be conducted. It talks about a person's father who is a lawyer and how he is told to take on a case of an African-American, Tom Robinson; he is accused of a heinous crime. There is also a case about a mysterious person named Boo Radley, and how Scout, the main character, learns to stand in his shoes, while the rest of society things of Boo as a vicious animal. However, the book does involve things which young kids can't handle. For ex: talks about death and rape. So, I would give the book the rating for 12+. But I would also give the book a 5 STAR rating.

To most people, graphic novels aren’t worth it to them. But those who won’t read this are missing out on a great story. The story is of a girl’s perspective of her brother breaking his arm. While it may sound silly, the story goes through a lot more than you would think. The story goes with a mysterious neighbor and a court case. The book highlights the society of the American past during the Great Depression. To Kill A Mocking bird is a beautifully crafted story that takes the reader through the life of a family during the Depression-era.

I'm sure I've read this book no less than 10 times. Set in the Great Depression, this classic novel delves deep into human nature, both good and bad. Written from a child's innocent perspective, it tells the story of how her father Atticus Finch defends a young black man of a serious crime in a time when racism was commonplace. To Kill A Mocking bird is a beautifully written story that exemplifies lessons learned through struggle, loyalty, and truth of convictions.

Beautiful graphic novel!
I'm more comfortable with graphic novels, and this is one of those books I'm comfortable with!
A spectacular summary for the story if you don't want to read the original (But you should.)
Justice for all!

If you're tempted to dismiss this book because it is a graphic novel, I would strongly urge you to reconsider. Fred Fordham's adaptation is both beautifully rendered and quite faithful to Harper Lee's texts. The graphics are mini-paintings and provided such a rich addition to the story. This was a wonderful way to revisit a controversial and compelling classic.

RATING:5 STARS
2018; Harper/HarperCollins Canada

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is one of my favourite books. As cliche as it sounds, this book changed my life. It made me aware that the colour of one's skin can be enough for someone to hate you, that truth and justice wasn't always going to be fair and the good guys don't always win. Lee's writing also inspired me as a writer. When I saw that Lee's book was getting adapted into a graphic novel, I had mixed feelings as I didn't know how faithful it would be to the original story. Were they going to add or take big things out. Phew, Fordham did an amazing job! Not only were the illustrations great, but the story is faithful to the book and hits all the great scenes. This is one I hope to buy as it a must for any collection, especially fans of the writer and the book.

Racial barriers, overcoming adversity, seeing the best in people, that's what this book is about. Recommended to those who will understand adult content subjects.
