    Monster The Graphic Novel is a companion to RIP godfather of African American Children s and YA literature Walter Dean Myers s classic and still wildly popular tale of juvenile justice and representation, Monster, and it is not, as are some recent comics adaptations of books taught in American schools such as Speak, To Kill a Mockingbird, or The Handmaid s Tale are, an instant classic artistic rendition of the original, but it is good and especially useful as a way of helping visualize the st Monster The Graphic Novel is a companion to RIP godfather of African American Children s and YA literature Walter Dean Myers s classic and still wildly popular tale of juvenile justice and representation, Monster, and it is not, as are some recent comics adaptations of books taught in American schools such as Speak, To Kill a Mockingbird, or The Handmaid s Tale are, an instant classic artistic rendition of the original, but it is good and especially useful as a way of helping visualize the story The question is whether it was really necessary to do a comics version, as the story is easily accessible and pretty visual in the original, as Steve Harmon, stuck in jail for the trial, keeps a journal and shapes his experience of events into a screenplay In keeping with the continuing middle grades and YA fascination with multiple fonts and type sizes, it is still, two decades after its initial publication lively and visually interesting for them as a text as it focuses on the trial, giving kids ample opportunity to engage in their own mock trials and inquiry into juvenile justice in their vicinities.But the graphic adaptation just focuses on the trial, and not the representation of experience in a journal or screenplay with which Steve is engaged, so it is farstraightforward than the original I read it with my Growing Up class in conjunction with other books on juvenile justice such as The Hate U Give, Neighborhood Girls, American Boys and the Poet X, with some poetry on related issues including 1919 by Eve Ewing and Bloodstone Cowboy by Kara Jackson I ll say that most of my students who read this version of the book liked it quite a bitthan I did I thought it was just fine but I d never substitute it for the original

    Wonderfully illustrated but lacks some clarify in the narrative in the opening scenes for those unfamiliar with the story.

    Myer s 1999 novel is a favorite class discussion novel for our 8th grade, so it was interesting to see it adapted into a graphic novel Steve Harmon is an African American teenager who is very interested in film, and the book is presented as if it is the screenplay for a movie Harmon is making for class Steve is on trial because he is accused of being the lookout for a robbery that ended in a drugstore owner being shot Steve protrays his neighborhood, the people he knows, and his perception of Myer s 1999 novel is a favorite class discussion novel for our 8th grade, so it was interesting to see it adapted into a graphic novel Steve Harmon is an African American teenager who is very interested in film, and the book is presented as if it is the screenplay for a movie Harmon is making for class Steve is on trial because he is accused of being the lookout for a robbery that ended in a drugstore owner being shot Steve protrays his neighborhood, the people he knows, and his perception of the events The lawyers at the trial bring up doubt concerning many of the events, and Steve, while he knows he is not guilty, begins to doubt the actions that caused him to be in this situation This is a timely book, given the current events in the news this summer The graphic novel makes the characters seem very immediate and real, whether it is the arrogant swagger of Bobo, or the grief and disbelief of Steve s father The difficulties that Steve faces in his neighborhood are not glossed over, and there are elements in the novel and in this graphic version that make thissuitable for young adult readers It is a good book for springboard discussions about how innocent people can be accused of crimes when they are in the wrong place at the wrong time This version stays true to the novel, although the beginning lacks some of the background information that helps readers to understand the situation in the novel The pictures capture the gritty, inner city feeling of the setting, and will make this storyaccessible to readers who find pictures easier to process than paragraphs of description Monster A Graphic Novel is a must have for readers who are being introduced to this story for the first time, or who have read the novel and want to see the story told in a different way Teachers will find that using these books for a compare contrast exercise could be very interesting I, sadly, am not one who likes pictures, and since this book given the original screenplay format has always been confusing for me, I didn t much care for it personally Will have to buy a copy, though
