9789380028552: Don Quixote: Part 1: The Graphic Novel (Campfire Graphic Novels)

Don Quixote. The name is universally known for the idealistic, possibly insane, wannabe knight as much as a masterpiece of literature. Don Quixote, the book, is widely regarded as the first modern novel while Don Quixote, the character, is
among the most recognizable and beloved ever created.
The author, Miguel de Cervantes, once said of Don Quixote that he was created 'that children may handle him, youths may read him, men may understand him and old men may celebrate him.' Indeed, the misadventures of Quixote and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, are comical and entertaining to readers of all ages. At the same time, they speak deeply of man's place in the world and his aspirations.

This Campfire graphic novel adaptation is the ideal introduction to a story that readers will return to again and again throughout their lifetime.

About the Author:

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra was born on September 29, 1547 in Spain. After some studies in Madrid, Miguel became a soldier at the age of 21. In 1571 he took part in the battle of Lepanto. While returning from military service, Miguel was kidnapped by Barbary pirates and enslaved in Algiers for five years. After several escape attempts, he was eventually ransomed and returned to Spain in 1580. Five years later Miguel entered the civil service, working as a tax collector and government purchasing agent. However, literary success eluded the author until the publication of Don Quixote in 1605.

Review:

“A wonderful, funny story that would make a fantastic introduction to the story of Don Quixote...I really enjoyed this one!" — Nicola Manning, Back to Books

"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)
