Monnin, PhD, Teaching Graphic Novels.Out August 7th, 2018MY THOUGHTS I received this book in exchange for my honest review.This is the third book in a great graphic novel series written by Alexis E Fajardo Once again, you have a new take on historical characters, done up in an entertaining and fun concept.With it being a graphic novel, part of the review must pertain to the artwork The rendering and colors remind me of those used in the Tintin series, the twenty four comic albums, a series created by Belgian cartoonist Georges Remi, who wrote under the pen name Herg By mixing history with art, you have an easy reading resource perfect for holding the attention of middle graders who struggle to retain historical information Although the quality is not the same as those used by Herge s books, there is a drawing charm included that does keep your attention and enjoyment going strong.With an abundance of action, plot twists and turns, funny characters and well developed settings, this series is proving to be a masterful creation of educational properties, and a whole lot of fun too.The only thing, if anything at all, is a few of the graphics seemed difficult to tell facial expressions during action scenes This took away from the impact of the narrative 3.5 Picking up where the second book left off, Grendel and Beowulf find themselves in Spain where a band of travelers mistakes them for gods and plans to use them in a sacrificial ritual Their storyline eventually intersects with that of Rodrigo, a promising young knight whose fortune has gone awry after he kills the father of his beloved, Ximena, and is exiled from his homeland Forced to become a mercenary soldier, Rodrigo eventually amasses a large army and gains back all that he has lost, 3.5 Picking up where

soldier, Rodrigo eventually amasses a large army and gains back all that he has lost, including the woman he loves Middle grade readers will be swept up by this epic drama and impressed by the honor of Rodrigo, the man who came to be called El Cid This graphic novel series is positively addicting, and it intrigues me to note just how vividly the cartoonist has fashioned the world populated by his characters There are several layers of intrigue at work behind almost every scene The great Kid Beowulf series gets even better in the third book There is new depth and shading, in the art, in the characters, and in the storytelling, which is very appropriate for young readers who are growing up with twin brothers Beowulf and Grendel In this installment there are also some strong female roles Ximena, Queen Urraca, and Boudi , and a story that very organically touches on always relevant issues of tolerance and empathy, without losing Kid B s signature sense of humor and pla The great Kid

graphic novel re telling of the story of El Cid makes it easier for most readers to understand this complicated story It is easy to differentiate characters Divisions between countries, religions, and beliefs are clearly explained without pejorative language It also uses humor to make it s point and to tell the story.Despite all these positive things, I have a hard time getting students to read this, even my most avid graphic novel fans. Note I received a digital review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. Colorful, creative, and a fun take on literature I wouldthan gladly add this one to my classroom or library shelf Cool stuff indeed.
