That being said, this book is not without its flaws. As the Book Review had mentioned, I fear some of the magic of reading the novel is lost in this translation. Many scenes are omitted from the book, such as the feast for example. It is mentioned briefly in the cart ride back to St. Ninian's. As some may know, it is a point of pride that Brian Jacques includes depictions of food in each of his novels. The story seems to advance a little quicker than it did in the book as well, which was a point of minor annoyance. Still, it is the first attempt at translating these stories into a graphic novel format, and I very much look forward to more in the future, if there are any planned. I have favorite stories I'd like to see translated myself.
So, overall..art style is great, which was a surprise, considering the artist's background work in Marvel comics. Instead of buffed-up super heroes, we have plain, simple mice. Who'da thunk it?
Story adaptation is pretty well conceived, though some beloved scenes may have been sacrificed.
I still recommend it, though. To both fans of the book and to those new to the series.
I hope this review is helpful.
So, all-in-all, a good first attempt, but one more word: do not attempt to look at this graphic novel until you are a least familiar with the original. You will not be able to tell what is going on, for as I said before, the pictures are pretty difficult to follow.
I thought the story was amazing. It made me want to read the original novel, which I had on my book shelf as a boy and never picked up unfortunately. So silly we are as young children. But I bought this because I love graphic novels and seeing as it was supposed to be an epic story I went with it. I enjoyed it from cover to cover, the art is very well done, it looks as though we are reading a well done sketchbook of what transpired. I was actually surprised this was a children's book first haha.
Overall I really enjoyed the graphic novel. If you are a fan of the books...i have no idea if this strays too far to be enjoyed by a fan. I imagine it should suffice though haha. But if you have not read the books and enjoy a great adventure with anthropomorphic animals beautifully illustrated in a real world. Pick it up
