Overview

“This gorgeously rendered graphic-novel version provides a new perspective for old fans but also acts as an immersive introduction for youngsters as well as any adult who somehow missed out on the iconic story set in Maycomb, Alabama.”—USA Today

A beautifully crafted graphic novel adaptation of Harper Lee’s beloved, Pulitzer Prize–winning American classic, voted America's best-loved novel in PBS's Great American Read.

"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird."

A haunting portrait of race and class, innocence and injustice, hypocrisy and heroism, tradition and transformation in the Deep South of the 1930s, Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird remains as important today as it was upon its initial publication in 1960, during the turbulent years of the Civil Rights movement.

Now, this most beloved and acclaimed novel is reborn for a new age as a gorgeous graphic novel. Scout, Jem, Boo Radley, Atticus Finch, and the small town of Maycomb, Alabama, are all captured in vivid and moving illustrations by artist Fred Fordham.

Enduring in vision, Harper Lee’s timeless novel illuminates the complexities of human nature and the depths of the human heart with humor, unwavering honesty, and a tender, nostalgic beauty. Lifetime admirers and new readers alike will be touched by this special visual edition that joins the ranks of the graphic novel adaptations of A Wrinkle in Time and The Alchemist.

What a wonderful adaptation! Fred Fordham takes the classic TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD and gives it a truly honorable new look and feel. In this graphic novel version Fordham tells Harper Lee's story almost verbatim. Those familiar with the novel will feel as if they are rereading the time-tested classic. The characters are drawn in a way that suggests the characters' appearances as they are portrayed in the film starring Gregory Peck. This adds to the comfortable reading experience. As a former teacher who taught this book to high school freshmen, I highly recommend it as a way to "sell" the book to readers who shy away from the length of the original. The tone and culture of the original is still present and offers more to reluctant readers than merely skimming the SparkNotes.
