Dear Craig Thompson,

BlanketsI love your art in Blankets, and it was a really fast read despite its intimidating size. I enjoyed the story, too.  I hear it won several awards, as well, congrats on that!  Unfortunately, there was something about the writing that made me want to give it only 4 stars out of 5…it was clunky at times, in a way that bugged me.  Your book did inspire a rather fascinating discussion at a book club meeting of children’s lit folk about lapsed Catholicism, though (the book club happens to have quite a number of lapsed Catholics). Overall, an awesome graphic novel.

Love,

apple
