Graphic Novel Spotlight: to dance
to dance: a ballerina's graphic novel by Siena Cherson Siegel
I call this one the graphic novel for people who don't like graphic novels. For those who think graphic novels are all about superheroes and monsters and junk (Poppycock of course). This book could hardly be any further removed from superheroes. A memoir of ballet, the images have a fluid sense, the grace of dance itself. Personally, I am quite fond of superhero books but I find myself fond of this book as well. It has a grace to it that is absent from a lot of books.
