Pages from this book:
As Blankets is a graphic novel, the beauty is in seeing the interaction of the words and illustrations on the page, so I can’t resist giving you a taste.
Craig and his brother as boys:
Blankets is a beautiful autobiographical graphic novel that poignantly tells the story of growing up. It includes breathtaking depictions of the author’s childhood and his wide-open imagination, which seems to burst out of the confinements of the small world of rural Wisconsin, hemmed in by the harsh winters and strict small-town life. 8 out of 10.
