This graphic novel by Nick Bertozzi gives a makeover to Pearl S. Buck's 1931 Pulitzer Prize-winning classic about the rise and fall of Chinese villagers before WWI.
Disclaimer: I didn't realize I was requesting a comic/graphic novel adaptation. If I had realized this, I wouldn't have requested the title. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised. This actually works as a graphic novel and I think that it will put this classic willingly into the hands of the YA audience.
