"Dispara a todos los grajos que quieras, si puedes pegarles, pero recuerda que es pecado matar a un ruiseñor".

Un inquietante retrato de raza y clase, inocencia e injusticia, hipocresía y heroísmo, tradición y transformación en el profundo sur de la década de 1930, Matar a un ruiseñor de Harper Lee sigue siendo tan importante hoy en día como lo fue su publicación inicial en

To Kill a Mockingbird: A Graphic Novel is a 2018 Harper publication.

I’m not going to review the plot of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’, but will instead offer you a review of the graphic novel version of the beloved classic.

I am new to the graphic novel category and am still getting my sea legs, so to speak, but I have discovered one of the best ways to acclimate myself is by reading familiar stories in the graphic novel format. So far, I am having a blast re-reading a few classics and having that e

This graphic novel really does justice to the original book! This is one of my favorite books and I love the movie! Anyone who is a fan of this book will love this graphic novel. I have went a little overboard on the pictures I added so bear with me 😊





























Happy Reading!

Well. . . it's official. I'm in love again.

This time it's a widower, a man in his late 40s. . . father of two. . . an attorney.

His name is Atticus Finch.

He lives in the Deep South, among an appalling racism that is shoulder deep, yet he has taught his children that being a racist is like cheating. . . cheating at being human.

He takes every difficult case, even if the client can't properly pay him, and he raises his kids, rather than pawning them off on female relatives, and he is always there. .

Ok wow how long ago did I read the prose version!? Maybe in highschool, so roughly 200 years ago yes 😌I always remember liking the book (I named my dog Atticus lol but I just loved the name; also my dog is a menace so that backfired) and I was really keen to reread.

I know the book is always hailed as a leading voice on racism discussion...which is pretty absurd considering it's by a white POV and author. So I side-eye a lot of things now that I didn't think a lot about back when I read it as a t

The first graphic adaptation of this American classic that I taught several times a day every semester I taught high school, also showing the Gregory Peck film version, which if you haven't ever seen, is a must. Fordham, a Brit, who also illustrated an adaptation of Philip Pullman's Golden Compass, is faithful to the story, and says so in his afterword. This is not a creative interpretation of/reflection on To Kill, but as in the first Harry Potter film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Sorcere ...more

"I simply want to tell you that there are some men in this world who were born to do our unpleasant jobs for us. Your father is one of them . . . We're so rarely called on to be Christians, but when we are, we've got men like Atticus to go for us." -- neighbor Miss Maudie to siblings Jem and Scout, regarding their father Atticus Finch's burdensome courtroom defense of Tom Robinson

I really, really enjoyed this! I loved the original book and it was so so cool to see it as a graphic novel. The drawings are amazing and the color is perfect. The story is just as funny and great as it was originally.

Uncle Jack Finch: "You want to grow up to be a lady, don't you?"
Scout: "Not particularly."


Until this book fell into my hands, I would have scoffed, "Ah, yes, a graphic novel . . . for those who are too lazy to read the Cliffs Notes version."

But, oh, this is gorgeous: the familiar story told through dialogue, and sun-dappled watercolors. From my original reading of the book, I mostly remembered the trial, but this book brought back the story of Scout, and Jem, and their magical childhood before

To my surprise, I’ve actually rated this higher than Harper Lee’s original; I’d attribute that to the fact that I read the novel in high school and haven’t reread it since then, so I tend to associate it with boring essay assignments and a sense of duty. I’m also surprised by how little I remembered of the plot from the book or the Gregory Peck movie, such that there were a few moments here that actually made me gasp. Fordham’s version is highly faithful, including plenty of direct quotes from t ...more

I really love this story and it was lovely to read it as a graphic novel. This story is important because it teaches us to accept people for who they are, the colour of our skin should not have any affect on how we treat a person, God gave us our skin and He loves us all.
I love atticus, the way he treats his children with kindness and teaching them to see people and to respect their choices to look past their grumpiness, their colour and their fears and always show them kindness. This stuck out

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 fait

1. The novel is my favorite book of all time and this graphic novel has become my favorite graphic novel.
2. I loved the pictures.
3. As soon as I started reading, it was like going back to an old friend. Scout made me laugh, Atticus made me want to marry him, my heart soared with the mockingbirds.
4. I read this book in high school and gravitated towards the kindness themes, but I don’t guess I understood the Mockingbird theme. I would say both Boo and Tom are Mockingbirds.
5. I learned a flivver

My dad bought me a copy of the To Kill a Mockingbird graphic novel for Christmas. I have been a huge To Kill a Mockingbird fan ever since I was a kid and read it for the first time (seriously, I have a tattoo homage and a dog named Scout). I was embarrassed to admit I didn’t realize they released a graphic novel, and thought of the gift as more of a novelty, since I have never read a graphic novel before. This weekend my curiosity got the best of me and I cracked the cover and never turned back. ...more

Love that they did this in a graphic novel format. It's been years since I've read the actual novel, but from what I remember they seem to have gotten the heart of it. I think for someone who is reading this story for the first time, you must do the novel first. This book means so much more if you have already read the book first.

I love the clean, neat artwork. The story made me cry and it also made me angry all over again at the injustices in this small town.

I would definitely buy this to shelv

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite stories. I first read the novel in high school, and then acted in a stage production of it one summer, have watched the move once or twice, and have revisited the book every so often. I'm very familiar with it, and I think it's a masterpiece of American storytelling.

I wouldn't have been especially interested in a graphic novel adaptation (I've read a number of bland adaptations of literary classics), except that I kept hearing really good things about

Drawing upon some of richest source material in American literature, Fred Fordham delivers a reverential adaptation. While the art can be a bit stiff and conservative, the story remains as powerful as ever in this new form. I gulped it down in one sitting.

Five stars for Harper Lee.

Three stars for this decent enough adaptation of the novel, which tries but fails to capture the richness of the original. It's okay, but if you don't know the novel, if you don't understand the power contained in this book, Fred Fordham's retelling won't do much for you.

Zero stars for the teachers and administrators who have already begun to replace Lee's beautiful book with this meager alternative. Shame on you.

To Kill A Mockingbird should need no introduction.  It is an American classic and arguably the most important work in American literature in the 20th century.

I was thrilled to learn that it was being adapted into a graphic novel, which could make the story more accessible to young readers by combining visual art and language to share this enduring story.

The story of a black man wrongly accused of a crime by a white woman in the Deep South of the 1930's and the neighborhood legend of a man named

If you are a fan of both graphic novels AND To Kill a Mockingbird, pick this up.

This is a gorgeous graphic novel first and foremost. Fordham’s artwork is well done, very effective and quite faithful to the book. There are plenty of direct quotes from the book and in places that he has edited or adapted, the panels move the story along quite well. I am a big fan of TKaM and I was a little leery of reading a graphic novel version of it but when it come in from the library I was blown away by how b

I read the original version more than twenty years ago so it’s not from that perspective that I choose to review the graphic novel. Rather, my review is on the merits of the adaptation. Unfortunately I didn’t really encounter anything that tipped me over from a perch on the solidly good. Maybe its the distinctly lackluster way I‘m feeling at the moment, or maybe its the breadth of works I‘ve read by authors like Toni Morrison that have just done a better job at conveying that gut punch.
