Children of the Moors
by Mick Manning
and illustrated by
Back Cover Description:
One day on the wild moors near his home, a boy meets a young woman in the long Victorian dress. Could she really be Charlotte Bronte? She certainly has amazing tales to tell of the famous sisters, Charlotte, Emily, Ann, and their brother, Branwell. Her stories reveal how the girls grew to be three of our greatest writers, inspired by the place they loved so well: the wild moorland village of Haworth in Yorkshire.
Well, I must say that I truly love this picture book that is written in a graphic novel style. It's the story of the famous Bronte sisters, and it includes exquisite artwork. I am partial to picture books that tell a full story (like they used to do in times past), so this book really touched my heart with its expanded text and beautiful artwork. The Brontes ~ Children of the Moors would be the perfect way to introduce a young reader to the talented sister trio and some of the iconic works they wrote. I highly recommend this lovely book to readers of all ages!
