What Teachers & Students Have to Say
My students have absolutely loved the Manga Classics! It's rare these days to have kids coming to you asking for more works of classic literature. I have had students retain more from a two-hour read of a Manga Classic than they have in a two-week read of a traditional classic. They keep coming back for more, with some students reading three a week for enrichment!

The vivid imagery of Manga Classics increased retention rates and drew in my most reluctant readers! I'm thrilled to see my students reading by choice, and the fact that it is classic literature makes it even better.

My students are so excited about this book series! I cannot keep them on the library shelf. This book, in particular, is opening new worlds for readers--introducing them to one of the greatest classic stories and getting them excited to explore more. The accessible and fun format attracts them and the story hooks them!

Manga Classics turns non-readers into readers by engaging them with cool graphics coupled with the classic story lines of Dickens, Hugo, and Kipling to keep their interest and give them the ability to discuss literature!
