Alex and Vesco recommend...

If you like graphic novels, I recommend Maus. It is a story about the holocaust. A father tells his son what happened with a lot of details. The thing that makes this holocaust story special is that all the Jews are represented as mice and all the Nazis - cats. The Polish peopls are represented as pigs and the Americans as dogs. I really like the drawings, they are well made and perfectly show emotion. If you studied Night in 9th grade and want it like a graphic novel, then I recommend that you read it. Read it in one go, it will take you less than two hours. -Alex

Are you interested in the Holocaust? Are you bored of heavy books that talk about WWII? Then Maus is the book for you. It's not just a book - it's a graphic novel that tells the story of hte Jews during WWII in an unusual way. Watch the Nazis and Jews play like a cat and a mouse. Who's going to win? -Vesco


  1. Wow, the simbolic meaning of the mouse being the Jews and the Nazis being the cats really makes us think about how horrible it must have been. -Alejandro Arregui 10/7

  2. It is a great book that makes a person begin to see what it might have been to be a jew during the Holocost.

  3. It's a really great book. It takes less than 30 minutes to read, but you get a very clear idea of the horrors of the Holocaust. Ivaylo Danailov 10/7

  4. It seems interesting to read. I suppose it would seem quite strange to read about such horrible things in a graphic novel but it could be a great different way to represent history.
