I’d heard amazing things about this graphic novel but wanted to read Jane Eyre before picking this one up as it does spoil the storyline slightly.
This is a sad but sweet tale of a lonely little girl who seeks solace in books, particularly Jane Eyre. With the help of this book and a brief meeting with a fox, the girl learns more about herself and how to ignore the bullies who are tormenting her.
The artwork is not something I would usually gravitate towards. Most pages consist of pencil drawings with hand-written text but the pages discussing Jane Eyre are beautiful watercolours.
Overall I would recommend this graphic novel because it is beautiful though very simple.
3 out of 5 stars!
