Audience: Primary-Intermediate

Appeal: This is an extremely interesting book! The fact that it is digital and can read to you is even better! Any child can relate to this book about being in trouble and be able relate to this particular time in history, since it was only a few years ago. The graphic novel makes it seem like they aren't actually reading. This would appeal to children because it is in voices and extremely easy to listen to!

We meet an angry Anton Fox reflecting back on his last 24 hours that leads to his getting arrested for graffiti on a brick wall. Using the graphic format on one page and a story on the other, Hope weaves a high interest story of redemption in an urban setting with great illustrations by Nick Derington. Our students liked the graphic aspects, the speech bubbles and the Obama information.
