I Kill Giants by Joe Kelly

I Kill Giants by Joe Kelly is a graphic novel with a lot of depth. The story focuses on Barbara Thorson, a fifth grade girl seemingly obsessed with giants and how to kill them. Her giant obsession leads to troubles at school, upsetting teachers and counselors and attracting the attention of school bullies. Yet there is deeper meaning behind her fantastical preoccupation, and the book intricately blends elements of Barbara's fantasy into the very real story of a young girl dealing with tragedy. Illustrated by JM Ken Niimura in stark and dynamic black and white, the art emphasizes the emotion and tone of Joe Kelly's tale to create a compelling and meaningful book.
