Product Details


Finalist for the 2012 Stan Lee Excelsior Award

For those familiar with the Ramayana and its considerable length, Nagpal’s annotated graphic novel version is an engaging adaptation that carries readers swiftly through major plot points. The short glossary is a nice addition, although not essential for older readers, since the meanings of most unfamiliar words are cleverly embedded through contextualization by Nagpal. . .  The illustrations are vibrant and the text easy to read, both in terms of vocabulary and organization. Ideal for midlevel to early YA readers who enjoy fantasy, history, or epic tales. — School Library Journal

“A quiet poignancy counterpoints the fiery graphics of these pages, giving readers yet another perspective on an inexhaustibly retellable tale.” Books for Keeps

“This is a touching tale of love, honour, and sacrifice that reveals one woman’s shining strength in an unforgiving world…I have absolutely no problem with highly recommending this book…The artwork is top quality and the colours so vibrant.” – Terry Hooper, Comic Bits Online

Manikandan’s art really shines when he is drawing the mythical…he really takes off when he draws the battles or characters like Hanumana, a sort of Monkey-King character.”

John Tompkins, Sweet Union Toonists

“I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in  a way that excites kids about classic literature.”

— Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)
