To clarify, this is a review for the graphic novel of Black. A graphic novel is like a really long comic book. Someone is shooting at Thomas Hunter. Then they are chasing him. He runs to his sisters house for safety, but when he falls asleep he wakes up in a strange and foreign land. Every time he falls asleep in one world, he wakes up in the other. Thomas discovers that in order to save earth from a deadly virus, he must ask questions in the other world. And that fantasy world is about to encounter a major problem itself. I love Dekkers Circle Trilogy. Reading this graphic novel after knowing the books so well was a bit difficult. I felt like it moved too fast and left out so many important details. But I read it aloud to my seven-year-old son and he loved it. The illustrations are excellent, and we did have to stop a few times so I could explain something, but even with details left out, this story captivated. I highly recommend this graphic novel for kids who love action-packed adventure stories. Even the ones who dont like to read should get into this. Its a little violent in parts, as Thomas is being shot at and the fighting is illustrated. So, if you arent into that, you might not like this. If you do, youll love it.
