Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

From the man who brought us the Caldecott-Medal-winning novel Hugo Cabret (incidentially which translated wonderfully to the big screen), this graphic novel about deaf culture crosses two generations; one story told first in pictures and one told in words. The two characters become intertwined into a beautifully crafted story of illustrations and words that emphasizes family, acceptance and how one grows and changes over a lifetime.

Stitches by David Small

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This heart-wrenching graphic novel memoirs deserves your attention. David Small is a fantastic illustrator and looking into his childhood through the perspective of illustrative art from his memory as a child is fantastic. The images capture what words cannot–those pictures and thoughts that run through one’s mind as a child.
