Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

GR 3–6-What a brash undertaking! To retell The Witches as a graphic novel and to replace Roald Dahl's familiar style—it would be unseemly if Bagieu didn't make it so utterly charged. The pacing is incredible as panel after panel and spot after spot of long views, close-ups, wide-angle perspectives, and facial zooms relay the story of a boy-turned-mouse who succeeds in ridding England of witches by putting a mouse-making serum into the soup they are served. This may lure an entirely new generation of readers into Dahl's books—at almost 300 pages, it's a sizable, satisfying tome. It's perfect fourth and fifth grade humor: grotesque humans, horrific witches in disguise as beautifully kitted-out women, with high heels and push-up bras, leering close takes of a chef's crotch as a mouse in his pants bulges, and another scene of the man in tidy whities, pants down. Is this in good taste? No. Is it funny? Yes. Let's leave controversy aside. Women fare badly, parents even worse, the message of the boy's acceptance of being a mouse with a lifespan that matches his caretaker dubious, and the chain-smoking grandmother (who has brown skin, as does her young charge) at the center of the tale won't win any awards as a healthy role model, but she is the most loving person present. VERDICT Warts and all, whether witches or Dahl, the book will be devoured by readers and shared widely among peers.—Kimberly Olson Fakih, School Library Journal --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

Praise for Brazen by Pénélope Bagieu:"Bagieu's pen transforms these true stories into something that has the tone of a personalized fairy tale. And in the end, this turns out to be just perfect." -- The New York TimesPraise for California Dreamin': Cass Elliot Before The Mamas & the Papas by Pénélope Bagieu:"Bagieu's drawings are superlative: soft pencil lines that convey detail without constraining her figures and that animate the characters' exuberant facial expressions." -- The Paris ReviewPraise for Exquisite Corpse by Pénélope Bagieu:"Pénélope Bagieu has mastered a magic trick... she can turn paper into flesh. And ink becomes lifeblood... her characters not only breathe and pulsate with vivid life. They also seem entirely, organically authentic in their own skin." -- The Washington Post

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant graphic adaptation of a Roald Dahl classic
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 24, 2020
Beautifully presented hardback with great interior artwork. I’m a comic fan and loved the movie as a kid, I saw this come up in the comic book Previews and couldn’t wait to buy. My kids have my same enthusiasm for comics as well as all things spooky. Completely captivated my 5 year old daughter who couldn’t wait to read more as soon as she got home from school! We read together in a few days and my 4 year old son wants to start from the beginning now. It’s not too text heavy and requires one to really feel into the story with the images working well as a read aloud with some fun voices and expressions. The panels seamlessly flow and capture the story progression effortlessly. I know I’m a reluctant reader and I’m sure the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree but this helped me work to build my daughters vocabulary with a few big words whilst enjoying wonderful illustrations and a great edge of your seat story. Maybe not suitable for all little ones but my genre is horror and whilst I think the old movie would be too scary, this was kid friendly enough for my little terrors! Now I need to find more graphic novels like this as this really helped me and my kids connect where reading books hasn’t managed before.
