What Nobel prize winner jumped the graphic novel craze in 2003 by publishing a children's book with her son written in graphic novel style? The writing is also verse or song. The art is charming. The story is a re-telling of the old fable, this time on whether to work on practical things or spend your time creating song. What is this truly great writer and her son's conclusion? Well, you'll have to read it. We have now lost both writers, and this book, not as famous as her novels, is still blazingly original.
