A sweet story about bullying and Jane Eyre. The illustrations are black and white (not really, but I don't know enough about illustrations to know exactly what "color" they were drawn in...they looked sepia-ish?), except when the little girl was reading Jane Eyre-those parts were in color, as well as when she meets the fox. Just beautiful. ( )

Isabelle Arsenault's drawings are beautiful, if somewhat melancholy - fitting for the story about bullying and finding friendship that Fanny Britt wrote.

I wished the story were a little longer or more detailed, but it is a very nice short story and makes good use of symbolism and metaphor, as well as color and light in the illustrations. ( )

This was a really lovely book. It is a very realistic depiction of both the harshness of pre-teen / early teen girl bullying and the saving grace of finding even just one great friend. I could certainly relate to the escapism of reading to avoid the troubles and tribulations of real life. ( )

Jane, the Fox and Me by Fanny Britt with artwork by Isabelle Arsenault is both beautifully told and drawn. The artwork is soft but with sudden colorful and eyecatching items that draw the reader’s attention and play up the power of one’s imagination.

This is the story of Helene, a young girl who escapes being bullied by reading Jane Eyre and pretending utter indifference even though she has taken every insult to heart and feels worthless. When her class is sent to a Nature Camp she finds herself in the “Outcast” tent. One evening she has an encounter with a fox who appears to represent hope. The fox disappears but shortly afterwards a new girl arrives at the Outcast tent and suddenly Helene has a friend and all the outcasts find themselves bonding. Having someone to talk to, laugh with and share things brings both light and color into Helene’s life.

Jane, the Fox and Me is wonderful example of what a graphic novel can do. It’s emotional honesty in showing the damage that casual brutality can do to a child is harrowing. When she finds a friend we are reassured that in connecting with another, Helene will be able to move on. Jane, The Fox and Me is a bittersweet story that I think makes it’s point through both it’s words and it’s artwork. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Hâeláene is an outcast in her grade. Her only consolation is reading Jane Eyre. Even seeing a lovely fox doesn't make her feel better, but maybe a new friendship will.
