Format: Hardcover
I don't often read graphic novels aimed at children; there doesn't seem to be many, and those that exist I never seem to hear about. So when I was asked to review Jane, the Fox and Me, I was pretty excited. I love illustrations and I love words, and mixing the two together often produces fantastic results. This book is no exception, and I'm so glad it's getting a UK publication. I just hope it finds its way into the right hands.

This is a fairly short read, one-hundred-and-one pages, to be exact, but its pages are infused with emotion. It's about a girl, Helene, who's bullied relentlessly by her former friends and fellow classmates. They tease her about her weight, her appearance and fashion choices, really anything they can find to make her feel bad about herself. Her mother is so worn out she doesn't notice, so Helene takes solace in a book: Jane Eyre. She's enchanted by the story, about how Mr. Rochester loves Jane even though she's plain and wears brown dresses. Helene hopes there's someone out there for her somewhere, someday. Everything changes when she goes on a school trip and meets Geraldine - a girl who doesn't laugh, taunt or make her feel bad. A friend at last.

I absolutely cannot abide bullying of any form, and it always makes me sad to read about it, even if it's only fictional. No one person should be made to feel anything less than happy with themselves and with life, but it's important to document what goes on in school halls and how things can eventually get better. Fanny Britt writes here with the utmost care and attention, making Helene come to life and showing us her struggle.

I love this book. I just had to own a copy even though I am an adult and this is aimed at teenagers. The drawings are simple yet lovely and the story is one that many could relate to. I am keeping it on my bookshelf for my daughter when she is old enough.
