Jane, the Fox & Me review – beat the bullies with the help of Jane Eyre | Books | The GuardianHer loving mother is too tired to be any help. The insults written on walls, like her weighing , increase in her mind to and more as the story progresses. Arsenault does not depict even a mildly overweight girl. A problem that accompanies what seems real versus imagined is trying to negotiate what is normal—and how to negotiate conflict. As with the book she is reading, she hides here in the foliage, too, aggrieved. She begins to demonstrate these future moments here and there as the book makes its way. For all the angst of shifting relationships with others and self, there are amusements to be found.
Thank you, Mr. Falker read by Jane Kaczmarek
PDF - Jane, the Fox and Me
However, this is a graphic novel so well drawn and beautifully told, I'm certain it will speak to adults, too — especially if you've only to think of your school days for your stomach to flip over. It's a collaboration between Quebec playwright Fanny Britt and award-winning illustrator Isabelle Arsenault , and I found it painfully evocative, the years dissolving almost as fast as I could turn its pages. We are in Canada in the s or so I'm guessing: the boys in the book like to listen to records by the Police while eating copious amounts of liquorice. At school in Quebec, Helene finds herself an outcast. Her enemies, a regular bunch of mean girls, taunt her in the playground and on the bus home, and write spiteful comments about her weight on the lavatory walls.
This is a coming-of-age about the pain of being an adolescent girl and the horrendous cruelty of middle-school peers. I hate to write a long, diluted discussion of a story that is universally recognizable, both in these lovely illustrations and the remarkable writing, but I will take a moment to make a few observations. The author uses the story-within-a-story technique to some degree. The narrator, Helene, skips back and forth from her own depressing circumstances to those of Jane Eyre, who also, as we know, suffered her share of troubles. Your heart nearly stops during this unforgettable sequence. The book offers hope at the end. There is a new friendship with Genevieve.
