Mark Twain, “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: Graphic Classics” (Hauppauge, NY: Barron's, 2008)
Retold by Tom Ratliff, illustrated by Penko Gelev.

“You feel mighty free and easy and comfortable on a raft.”

This is the first 'Graphic Classics' by 'Barron's' that I've encountered, and it's excellent: realistic drawings, title description on each double-page, helpful footnotes explaining antiquated terms, e.g.:

“I didn't want anyone to know I had helped a slave escape. I had a reputation
As a pre-teen, I faked reading Mark Twain in middle school. As a Literature teacher, I avoid putting Twain novels on my syllabus and opt for one of his short stories, so I can expose my students without boring myself in the process. After reading the Graphic Classics version The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, I have re-evaluated my prior loathing of Twain and the other "dead white males" I was forced to read (or pretend to read) in High School. I selected the Graphic Classic along with 7 others ...more

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is about a young boy and the struggles he goes through. Huck, as he is called, and Tom Sawyer found a treasure chest full of gold. To protect his money, Judge Thatcher looked after Huck's share of the money. Tom and Huck started to play tricks on people, and even took Jim, the slave, hat, and hid it in a tree. When Huck's dad comes back after a year, he kidnaps Huck and takes him to an island. He takes Huck because he learns of the money that he has. Huck ...more

This is the graphic novel edition, retold by Tom Ratliff. It's no where NEAR as good as the real thing. It should have been considered impossible to retell Huck Finn in less than 50 pages. So many details left out; it's a travesty. It's more like a Cliff's Notes edition.
Wasn't as engaging as the other graphic novels I've read, but it was still interesting and enjoyable. Since I've never read the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (the actual classic) it was a great way to dive into the story.
