One thought on “Don Quixote”

  1. This is an abridged version of Don Quixote for kids, done with comic-book-style illustrations. It's covered all the essential elements of the story and moves quickly enough for a young kid to enjoy. Plus, the pictures are drawn quite humourously and should get a giggle from kids following the story in the pictures. All in all, not a bad way to introduce this classic.

  2. Like the comic book style, great fun for kids. Now I finally know what the phrase 'tilting at windmills' is all about.

  3. For the most part, I enjoyed this version of Don Quixote. However, about midway, I was confused by the art panels. The big heading went across a two-page spread, but then the panels were to be read across the separate pages. I had to carefully examine the punctuation to determine whether I should read across the two pages or down the page I was currently on. I don't know why so much of the story was crowded into two pages. The rest of the book made it quite easy to follow the story line.

  4. The pathos of don Quixote and Sancho is perfectly captured and condensed by Marcia Williams. She never disappoints with her adaptations of classic tales.
