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.

    I would say that this book is really amazing and I recommend it for other kids and this was a very good book about a kid who was in his late teens like 17 and he was involved in a gang and this man that worked at a corner store was killed and they took him and arrested him because they thought that he was guilty of killing him but at the end they caught the man who did it and he was able to go back home with his family but he went through a lot of problems and his mother was always crying because they took him away from her and his father was mad but sad because his son was locked up and he never did anything and his little brother was sad too. But he got out and he made a film about what happened and when he was back in school he showed it to the class and he lived a lot better after that and his family were together again.
