Little Carp by Marzena Sowa
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Little Carp is a comic about Marzi, a girl living in Poland in the 80s. The comic is an autobiographical account of the authors childhood. I think that choosing to write your biography in comics is a brave choice. It helps to bring everything to life, but it also limits the amount of detail that can be provided.
I struggled a little with this book, because Poland in the 80s was very different than the world I grew up in. There are cultural things mentioned in the book that I have no experience with. I don't think that can be avoided, it how it really was at the time, but it does make it harder to understand what is going on.
Although this is a comic, I would recommend this book for older kids to teens.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
