Product description

Combining the exciting graphics of manga style with classic stories, these beloved works by literary icons are accessible and entertaining to today's children, as well as educational--each story is accompanied by a time line that puts the story's events in historical perspective. Visually stunning, this series is a beautifully updated version of yesterday's literary comics, sure to hook young readers on these perennial classics and the written word. Manga, one of the fastest growing segments of children's literature, is incredibly popular amongst school-age children and lends itself exceptionally well to the vivid stories in this series. Jean Webster's novel has been beloved by young girls ever since it was published in 1912. In the story, Jerusha, an orphan girl, is surprised when an anonymous benefactor decides to send her to college as long as she faithfully writes to report her progress. Letters between Jerusha and her sponsor--enlivened in this retelling by manga illustrations of their separate activities--chronicle Jerusha's dreams and discoveries as she comes of age.
