Notes and Opinions:  This has been one of the best graphic novel classics I've read. This was also one of the creepiest. The story was wonderful and I couldn't out it down. I still wish there would be longer and that the story would be a little more filled in but the illustrator did a wonderful job getting the story across. This would be the perfect book to read this Halloween!  It was more creepy vs. beautiful but it was so worth it.  I can not wait to see more of these.
