Jess recommends "The secret garden on 81st street : A modern graphic retelling of The Secret Garden"

Sometimes I am skeptical of modern retellings, but I really enjoyed this retelling of one of my childhood favorites. While intended for ages 8 - 12, with it's beautiful illustrations and personable characters, I would recommend this title to graphic novel readers of all ages or fans of the original. A fast-paced, feel-good read that touches on grief, family and friendship, and coping with death in an easy-to-read format that is well worth the read.
