A Note on Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed by Laurie Halse Anderson

Laurie Halse Anderson, an author whose work is always worth including on your personal or teacher bookshelf, has taken a popular to new and relevant ground in Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed. This book is a testament to the ways that enduring issues are brought to life through the prism of fantasy and, in this case, through the assemblage of words and images we find in graphic novels.
The source material is Anderson's young adult novel of the same name, released a few years back. Here, artist Leila del Duca brings the world of Wonder Woman, as imagined in this young adult-centered text, into vivid visual life.
There is much to appreciate about this book, with its commentary on the experience of refugees, and the thematic threads in this book are wonderfully accomplished. Please read.
