To Kill a Mockingbird: A Graphic Novel Kindle Edition
“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.

“This thoughtfully crafted interpretation of Lee’s classic reintroduces readers to the Finch family.. Fordham visually establishes the world of Maycomb County—with all its unspoken laws pertaining to race, class, and family—with a sure hand.” -- Publishers Weekly
“Like Lee’s spare novel, Fordham’s graphic adaptation leaves us to ponder what is unsaid, what is unseen, what lies in the subtext. A moving new take on a familiar story.” -- Booklist
“The economic and racial disparities, the blinders that “civilized” society stubbornly clings to, the realization that justice for all can never exist without equality for all—these are vividly portrayed not only via Lee’s words but also by Fordham’s art, making this graphic adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird a worthy partner to the original, providing a clarion call for civility, equality, and justice for all.” -- New York Journal of Books --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Keeps almost all of the original words of Harper Lee's story- so teachers will have same issues with language to explain to their students. Fordham also has a short afterword to explain why he kept the same language as Lee used in her original text too.
I'm glad I bought this, because only after reading it, I realized that I really don't need the pictures to support the text- I believe Lee's words are better read without the pictures eclipsing the reader's imagination. I have taught 8th grade ELA for 12 years, and I can certainly appreciate what Fordham has done, and his love for Lee's writing is expressed through his artwork. Since no one else has produced a TKaM graphic novel such as this before, I wanted to share it with my students. It has 9 frames per page, and it's pretty busy to keep track of, plus it's 273 pages long. But his care with each picture and what it should convey to readers is evident too. He does NOT have the final scene where Scout stands on Boo's porch imagining what his life was like from his window/PoV (as the old movie does not either). To me, that is one of the most important and poignant points of Scout's development and so I was a bit disappointed Fordham left that kind of imagery out of his version. However, after reading it, I'm still glad I have it for my library, but I don't think I need it for teaching lessons on empathy, imagery and figurative language at all. The original does that far better, in my opinion.
I recommend to all lovers to the original book!

I recommend to all lovers to the original book!
But oh my Lord, it gets me right in the heart every single time.
To Kill A Mockingbird is a classic that just tugs at your heartstrings and seeing it come to life in graphic novel format was such a beautiful gift. The illustrations were wonderful, the way the story was conveyed into this format was effortless.
The last time I read this book was 7 years ago, and given all the controversy during the release of Harper Lee's Go Set A Watchman - which I've yet to read - I was a little worried about how I would view To Kill A Mockingbird amidst all the rumors and things that came out about it in the past few years.
I shouldn't have worried though. I still loved Atticus Finch just as much, despite what I've heard about Go Set A Watchman, I still loved reading about Scout and Jem and their adventures from one summer to the next. I still loved Scout's relationship with her father. I still loved every single thing about the trial scene. And it still broke my heart to read how it all ends.
If there is one thing that I would improve, it would be the scene that Scout runs to her father when he is being mobbed by neighbors as he tries to protect Tom from them and she speaks to Mr. Cunningham and talks about his son and how they had him over for dinner one time. I remember that scene being very powerful in the book, but the reflection of that in the graphic novel didn't quite give me the same feeling. Maybe it's just the passage of time making me read and see things differently, I'm not sure.
I truly love this book, and I think having read this again now, I can finally transition into reading Go Set A Watchman, and I hope to God it doesn't disappoint or ruin this book for me in any way.
Kind of hard to follow in some parts of the story, a little vague. It was edited by someone who knew story line. I feel there is missing info from “scene” to “scene”. It still helped him connect. Chapters aren’t labeled either. Good drawings

If you're thinking that To Kill a Mocking Bird has themes inappropriate for a 10 year old, then you may be wrong. We found suitable ways to explain everything in an age-suitable way. Also, there is no age limit for emphasizing to someone that racism = bad.
