Educational details

Educational value
  • This is a valuable resource about the online graphic novel as a text form. It offers lower and middle secondary years students the opportunity to compare and contrast a fantasy narrative in its original short-story form and as a graphic novel. The visual elements of the resource are particularly useful. These elements allow students to develop their own story, while also enabling them to think about how they would have visually represented the main characters.
