In this graphic masterpiece, John Porcellino uses only the words of Henry David Thoreau to tell the story of the two years he spent on Walden Pond. The pared-down text focuses on Thoreau's most profound ideas, and Porcellino's fresh, simple pictures capture the essence of the philosopher's writings.

This short book illustrates Thoreau's time at Walden Pond using direct quotes from Thoreau's classic text. Unfortunately, the book's extremely simple line drawings do little to enhance the beauty of Thoreau's words and left me wondering what value was added to Thoreau's text.

A great introduction to "Walden" by Henry David Thoreau, one that I can see working to draw readers toward the actual work. Well done!
