About the Author:
Dave Shephard moved down to the south coast of England to study illustration at Brighton College many years ago. A love of drawing and sea swimming made the town a natural fit. Since then, he’s worked in the wonderfully varied and ever-evolving world of illustration. He specializes in books for teens and younger readers, as well as graphic novels.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book:  This was a good graphic novel retelling of the story but it did have some issues.

Notes and Opinions: This book was great but it had the major issue of being to fast. Although this was pretty long the story itself was very short. It needed more writing and it needed to slow down. The artwork was wonderful and creepy and colorful which I was very happy about. A lot of these classic graphic novels and mangas are all in black and white and that makes it loose a lot of the beauty that it could have. I wish that this would have added a few more pages and slowed the story down. I understand that they were trying to do the entire thing in one go but it was a little to fast. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Great but to fast.
