I enjoyed learning more about the story of Nellie McCLung – a suffragette who was a force behind getting women the vote in Canada. I like the images, but I felt that it was too text-heavy. Perhaps it could have been a longer book rather than cramming so much text in each strip. The beginning was a little difficult to follow, and then I read the back of the book and got a better bearing of exactly what was going on. Because I had to do that I had to give the book a lower rating since it was hard for the reader to get their bearing just from the text and graphics alone. It was also difficult to tell the difference between each of the characters in the graphics including Nellie. Overall I think it was an important topic to write about, but I feel that this particular media didn’t quite grasp the story as much as it could have.
