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.

The book:

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.
