    One thought on “Tom Thumb”

    1. Graphic Novel #1This text (obviously) reminds me of the Grimm Fairy Tale Tom Thumb, as well as the story of David and Goliath.The story of Tom Thumb reminds me to be resourceful, that no matter what the situation is, there is a way to overcome it.Tom Thumb is a story of overcoming the odds, such as Kerri Strug landing a vault at the Olympics, even thought she was injured.

    2. Good graphic novel for the younger or reluctant reader. The illustrations are bright and colorful the writing is sparse and not too challenging. Easy to follow with lots of action in the story and graphics. The back even has some discussion questions and writing prompts and vocabulary words, which is unique. Not much to say about the story, it the classic tale of Tom Thumb.
