Jane, the Fox and Me

Jane, the Fox and Me

By Fanny Britt

Toronto: Groundwood Press, 2012. 

Graphic Novel  100 pages.Jane

This is rather a sophisticated graphic novel.  The title might bring in the younger audience and its size but it is really meant for an older audience of grades 6/7 and up.  Illustrations are done by Isabelle Arsenault and are fabulous!

This is the story of overweight teen by the name of Helene who is bullied by her classmates; retreats to reading.  Not reading any ordinary book but reading and rereading Charlotte Bronte’s, Jane Eyre. Helene can identify with the main character from the book, Jane. Jane’s trials and tribulations are Helene’s. 

This might be a good book to use in connection with Jane Eyre.
