Middle Grade Monday features The Giver: Graphic Novel by Lois Lowry. Illustrated by P. Craig Russell. Lowry’s 1994 Newbery winning dystopian was adapted into a brilliantly illustrated graphic novel that perfectly captures the essence of twelve-year-old Jonas’ story. He lives in a perfect family in a perfect community where there is no strife or pain and is anxiously awaiting his job assignment. He’s also worried about flashes of color he’s frequently seeing.
If you loved The Giver or are a fan of graphic novels, you need to read this. This faithful adaptation is visually stunning. First purchase!
