has someone to talk to The drawings are gorgeous The stark scenes with the mean girls are in black, white and gray, but whenever Helene is reading her precious book or is being imaginative, beautiful

to use the B word, and when it is used, what comes to mind are characters like the teenage bully in Junior s sixth grade class in the film Problem Child 2 You rememberthe one who likes picking his nose and employing the art of spitball archery The irony is that often times, bullies are not unkempt misfits, or the posh, popular kids of the Mean Girls trio Most of the time they re ordinary, nice people who were at some point close friends of yours.Helene is a young girl in No one likes to use the B word, and when it is used, what comes to mind are characters like the teenage bully in Junior s sixth grade class in the film Problem Child 2 You rememberthe one who likes picking his nose and employing the art of spitball archery The irony is that often times, bullies are not unkempt misfits, or the posh, popular kids of the Mean Girls trio Most of the time they re ordinary, nice people who were at some point close friends of yours.Helene is a young girl in Montreal, who inexplicably finds herself ostracized by a group of girls that were at one time her friends Publicly taunted about her weight at almost every turn, she takes refuge in reading Jane Eyre If you ve ever been in this situation, then you ll understand that enduring the 30 minutes before school begins without friends to talk to, or trying to figure out where to hide during the lunch period because you re afraid to eat alone in the cafeteria, are real fears for children who are being shunned.All of these things are captured so beautifully in both the illustrations and writing of this novel Mostly cast in gray hues, the bleakness of Helene s situation, from her point of view, really pulls at your heart strings No matter how bad things get though, there is always hope and a light at the end of the tunnel This is expertly employed by Arsenault, the illustrator, in the burst of colors that surprise you when you turn certain pages, usually the ones dealing with Jane Eyre.This may be a children s book, but while I was reading it, I had an a ha moment I realized that this was happening to me at my place of employment the culprits nice people that I had been friends with at one time I realized that I d been handling it as best I could, but obviously it was bothering me, especially the comments that were overtly directed at me, and said within my hearing range.Like Helene, sometimes we don t speak up out of a sense of guilt or misplaced loyalty because these people were at one time our friends The irony is that we can only hope that our children will come to us directly when they re experiencing these things, and especially that they ll confront these bulliesbut that is easier said than done, as I ve realized myself Anyway, I just feel like this was such a beautifully profound book It was like a personal letter directed at me If you ever find a copy, savor it You can only read it for the first time once I enjoy the parts of Jane Eyre that are used in this story It works well with what the character is going through in the story She feels fat, she is not but she is teased that she is, and she feels plain and unnoticed Kids at school make fun of her She has to go to summer camp It is pretty lonely and tough, but she does end up meeting someone there toward the end that becomes a friend and having a friend can change the world for a person.The drawings are in

wanted to like thisthan I did I was a little disappointed, but the parts that had Jane Eyre being told were really good and they were also in color The fox was also in color.I have been watching video s on writing and story construction today and I don t really think about that in my reviews I think I will begin to try and understand what s happening in the story so it helps me learn this things.The story was interesting, but it also wasn t my favorite QUE LIVRO LINDO I have been having a hard time deciding what to think about this book Part of it is that various Goodreads friends whose views and reviewsI respect very much seem to differ on it It s complex, and I could be talked up from my current view rating, but for now I ll say This is a bully book by an accomplished Quebec

about a girl, Helene, who largely suffers in outcasted silence by groups of mean girls, told she is fat, for instance, which she seems to believe though by what we see, she is typically kid thin though she seems to believe it maybe if she was the least bit chunky it would makesense but maybe that s the point, that we begging to internalize the bile people throw at us She goes to a camp, and there she employs her usual escape, reading, and Jane Eyre is the book of the moment Jane is famously gloomy and the moor is gloomy and so is the tone of the art of this book in some places, fittingly, since it is by and large a somber, saddish story of isolation The art is also lovely, beautifully done, pencil, with subtle tonal changes, some pages in also lovely color to offset the darker tone The story of Jane Eyre is not literally connected, just in subtle ways Helene makes connections with her as outcast, isolated There s a fox that comes in, and this could bepart of the story than it now is, I thought I guess it now operates as a kind of turning point where she finally meets a sort ofmanic friend who suddenly and improbably changes her life The fox makes the title instead of the girl, so the fox is meant to be symbolic I felt there were some missed connections in all of this between Jane, the fox, the girl, it all feels a little too subtle and implied for me, though maybe it s really meant to be as evocative and poetic as the watercoloring I think that was the intention Read it and see what you think I ll read other rave reviews from people women, mostly who seem to really personally connect with it on so many levels Jane, the fox and Me tells the story of an outcast, socially awkward girl who doesn t seem to belong anywhere All of that changes when she encounters a mysterious fox and she enters a world of creativity and friendship With stunning graphic novel illustrations, an imaginative plot and references to Jane Eyre, this book is certainly one worth reading Jane, the fox and Me tells the story of an outcast, socially awkward girl who doesn t seem to belong anywhere All of that changes when she encounters a mysterious fox and she enters a world of creativity and friendship With stunning graphic novel illustrations, an imaginative plot and references to Jane Eyre, this book is certainly one worth reading Not enough fox Ahonest title Me reading Jane and briefly meeting a fox.Past that, not a bad book. These illustrations are amazing, I love them, this artist is so skillful at capturing body language and expressions Some lovely images of trees and hands made to look so effortless Brilliant Helene is bullied at school and receives abusive comments about her weight, she seeks comfort and escapism in reading, in particular Jane Eyre.I found the storyline lacking, I gathered this was set perhaps 30 years ago due to the music mentioned, my daughter suspected it wasn t current due to the lack of These illustrations are amazing, I love them, this artist is so skillful at capturing body language and expressions Some lovely images of trees and hands made to look so effortless Brilliant Helene is bullied at school and receives abusive comments about her weight, she seeks comfort and escapism in reading, in particular Jane Eyre.I found the storyline lacking, I gathered this was set perhaps 30 years ago due to the music mentioned, my daughter suspected it wasn t current due to the lack of phones, but as this is mainly a book about being bullied I wondered how helpful it would be to a child in that situation For example abusive comments about a child s weight written on a school wall and left there would not be tolerated in the way it was portrayed in this era, even struggling schools have some sort of help for children who are experiencing bullying I also felt that as Helen didn t look over weight at all, a child reading this who was actually over weight might feel be made to feel even worse There didn t seem to be any positve resolutions to Helens problems other than view spoiler when she found a friend she felt better and the bullies gave up hide spoiler I found the characters of Helen and her mother interesting and would like to have learnedabout them and their lives My daughter loved the illustrations and loved the fox but felt slightly mislead by the title as the fox only appears on two pages I have to give this 4 stars because the illustrations are exceptional.3 4 2019 A reread today Although I m still not sure about the message of the story the illustrations are amazing and so enjoyable to revisit
