Summary

A stunning graphic novel adaptation of Walter Dean Myers's New York Times bestseller Monster.

Monster is a multi-award-winning, provocative coming-of-age story about Steve Harmon, a teenager awaiting trial for a murder and robbery. As Steve acclimates to juvenile detention and goes to trial, he envisions how his ordeal would play out on the big screen.

Guy A. Sims, the acclaimed author of the Brotherman series of comic books, collaborated with his brother, the illustrator Dawud Anyabwile, in this thrilling black-and-white graphic novel adaption of Monster.

Monster was the first-ever Michael L. Printz Award recipient, an ALA Best Book, a Coretta Scott King Honor selection, and a National Book Award finalist. Monster is also now a major motion picture called All Rise starring Jennifer Hudson, Kelvin Harrison, Jr., Nas, and A$AP Rocky.

Fans of Monster and of the work of Walter Dean Myers--and even kids who think they don't like to read--will devour this graphic adaptation.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Myers' award-winning 1999 novel was a bold experiment in form, telling portions of the story in, among other things, a screenplay. African American teen Steve Harmon is a burgeoning filmmaker, and his interest in cinema shapes his account of being on trial for his role in a robbery that resulted in murder. Steve's story would be dramatic in any format, but this graphic adaptation is particularly well suited to the tale. Told as a trial with flashbacks to the robbery and moments in the lives of those affected, Sims' adaptation, aided by Anyabwile's ingenious black-and-white comic-book-style sequential art, perfectly captures the natural suspense of a courtroom drama. Using panels like a filmstrip, Sims and Anyabwile achieve several remarkably cinematic effects: alternating grids and splash pages captures the tension between close-up and long shots; the use of jittery lettering and uneven word balloons injects deeper anxiety into the sound design ; having a jury view the events recounted in testimony as a movie audience creates incisive visual metaphors. Though this graphic adaptation requires close and focused attention to unpack at times, the superbly rewarding format serves to powerfully emphasize Myers' themes of perspective and the quest to see one's self clearly. A must-have for public and school libraries, and a standout graphic novel.--Karp, Jesse Copyright 2015 Booklist"
