"A first-rate visual reframing: sensitive, artistically brilliant,
and as charged as its enigmatic predecessor with profound
challenges to mind and heart." -Kirkus, STARRED review
"This striking retelling of the modern classic blends words and images to create a brilliant new representation of Lowry's dystopian conflict....This stunning work will introduce The Giver to a brand-new audience and will also delight longtime fans." -School Library Journal, STARRED review
"Russell masterfully preserves the flow of story....The relief and sometimes shock of these colors allow the power of the memories to reach readers in a way beyond mere sight, and thus the wonder of Lowry's story is made palpable in a startling new way." -Booklist
"An accessible version of the story for readers who have not yet encountered it." -Publishers Weekly
"This beautifully illustrated graphic novel...gives new life to a true classic." -School Library Connection
