Now Monster has been adapted into a graphic novel by Guy Sims, with stunning black-and-white art from Dawud Anyabwile, Guy's brother.

The superbly rewarding format serves to powerfully emphasize Myers s themes of perspective and the quest to see one s self clearly. A must-have for public and school libraries, and a standout graphic novel. --Booklist (starred review)"
