El Deafo

El Deafo is an awesome graphic no20701984vel ideal for kids 9-12 but that could appeal to a wider audience.

The story of a young girl who loses her hearing is worthy of book club discussion and could help broach the topic of disability in a lesson on inclusion.

The substance doesn’t make it boring for casual readers. There’s enough humour and emotion to keep readers connected to Cece.

The way the illustrations handle vision loss is perfect and the hearing loss reflected in empty dialogue bubbles and jumbled text is extremely clever.

Fantastic story with adorable illustration.
