El Deafo

£8.99

In her graphic novel, ‘El Deafo‘ Cece Bell chronicles her experience as a deaf child through her Junior School years. She shares issues of friendship, learning, family and intervention. Cece’s story is clearly recalled, the detail made more specific by the genre.  I was wrong to have been resistant to this title originally, fearing it would be patronising, for it is a strong, funny, wise, ‘superhero’ effort. ‘El Deafo!’ the superhero whom Cece imagined would be able to sort out the problems she faced through her disability, would be proud!

El Deafo‘ was a deserving winner of the Newbery Honor Prize and Eisner Award. I loved reading this story, was constantly fascinated, engaged and amused. We recommend ‘El Deafo!‘ to our readers.
