About the Book

Monster: A Graphic Novel

A stunning black-and-white graphic novel adaptation of Walter Dean Myers's Michael L. Printz Award winner and New York Times bestseller MONSTER, adapted by Guy Sims and illustrated by Dawud Anyabwile

MONSTER is a multi-award-winning, provocative coming-of-age story about Steve Harmon, a teenager awaiting trial for a murder and robbery. As Steve acclimates to juvenile detention and goes to trial, he envisions the ordeal as a movie. MONSTER was the first-ever Michael L. Printz Award recipient, an ALA Best Book, a Coretta Scott King Honor selection, and a National Book Award finalist. Now MONSTER has been adapted into a graphic novel by Guy Sims, with stunning black-and-white art from Dawud Anyabwile, Guy's brother.

Fans of MONSTER and of the work of Walter Dean Myers --- and even kids who think they don't like to read --- will devour this graphic adaptation.
