Teachers Unite! This book will hook your students!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Maus: My Father Bleeds History v. 1: A Survivor's Tale (Paperback)
As a high school English teacher, I am constantly looking for new ways to reach reluctant readers. MAUS is just the book to do this and to introduce the Holocaust. Its easy to read prose is helped by the even more fascinating pictures that entice the reader to read on. The secondary theme of a strained father-son relationship appeals to teenagers as well. Three of my students are collaborating on a graphic novel about the Korean War--inspired, as I'm sure you will be too, by Spiegelman's gift of story-telling.
