“Just wanted to let you know that we just finished reading your new graphic novel in my online level 2 class. It was a big hit with these high schoolers who come from varied and often poor language experiences. I really enjoyed it too. Having every word translated made it a perfect first book! Most importantly, I think everyone can relate to some aspect of that book!”Odile M.
