Product Description

Review

'It's an honest and rather sweet tale of a girl coming to terms with her disability, and as such the kind of story that will strike a chord with any child who has felt ostracised or different. El Deafo is heartfelt, eye-opening, funny and beautifully drawn.' The Financial Times --The Financial Times

'Inspiring and honest, this is a wonderful graphic novel.' Book of the Week in We Love This Book and The Bookseller --The Bookseller

"Read El Deafo for the giggles, for the challenges, for the universal life experiences, and for the opportunity to be changed, even just a little. And for those readers who, like Cece, discover ways to turn the things the world calls weakness into the qualities they own as strengths, make sure to have a couple of capes on hand." --Matthew C. Winner, The Busy Librarian

Fantastic as it's a great way of teaching deaf awareness. A lot of it my own experience as I struggled too. I had a Phonic Ear too but my hearing loss a lot worse so even with it, had to lipreading everything. A must read for ANYONE in contact with deaf people. Amazon's price great too. Should be compulsory reading in all schools. I couldn't put it down and some of my BSL students are buying it too. And to the person who said el Deafo is in bad taste, well that's nothing compared to some of the names/ labels I endured growing up with a severe (then from teens onwards) a profound hearing loss. This book shows just why society needs to change its attitude towards those with a hearing loss. I'm proud of all my BSL and or CSW students, past and present, who do a lot to promote deaf awareness. This book is GREAT for ALL ages

Entertaining memoir of the author's early life. Of how she became deaf at the age of four and her coping with school, finding friends and different types of hearing aids. I found the story particularly of interest as my niece is completely deaf in one ear and has experienced the use of hearing devices in school also. The story goes up to about Cece's year in 5th grade, the year she finally has a small group of friends and feels comfortable in herself. An entertaining story but not exactly exciting nor did I find it humorous. The art reminded me much of Marc Brown and I particularly thought Cece looked like Arthur's sister, D.J. Most suited to elementary aged children and yet somewhat long for that age group.

El Deafo is the memoir of Cece Bell, she narrates her story in the form of a graphic novel – which is beautifully drawn and colourful.

From the age of 4 (following an illness) Cece is deaf. El Deafo is her story of growing up dealing new schools, friendships and her sonic hearing aid. This book gives you an excellent insight into the emotions Cece went through. Learning lip-reading, the assumption that ‘louder’ means she’ll be able to hear the TV, radio or the person better. Most of all though that minefield of trying to find friends.

I read El Deafo in one sitting, loving each new page. For me there is no age on this book, I think it’s suitable (and educational) for everyone.

Terrific graphic novel. I lent it to my Mum's husband who has been deaf since childhood with aids and it provoked some interesting conversation. he liked it too. The writer has a lovely grasp on the trickiness of friendships between girls at school and the drama of being 'naughty'. My Mum is now reading it.

This book is more oriented to children who have recently lost their hearing and their parents, however, I would recommend for all readers.

The story follows Cece a small 4 year old rabbit how after coming ill with meningitis loses her hearing. The story follows her feelings as to dealing with being deaf and how she comes to view her first difference and then superpower.

Hearing loss can be very challenging especially for children, however, as this book shows, there's nothing wrong with being deaf and vocalizing your feeling goes a long way to make children come to terms with their conditions.
