characters ueen of the Sea ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Dylan Meconis ✓ 7 read Cult graphic novelist Dylan Meconis offers a rich reimagining of history in this hybrid novel loosely based on the exile of ueen Elizabeth I by her sister ueen MaryWhen her sister seizes the throne ueen Eleanor of Albion is banished to a tiny island off t. With graphic novels and comics for kids being produced at a rate far prodigious than ever before you can get a little inured to the sameness of some of the titles There are the personal memoirs mostly about white girls There are the out of this world space and robot adventures There are the magic and witch inspired fantasies And then there are the books that sort of stand apart from the pack What we don t see a lot of in a given year is realistic historical fiction You might see it once in a while as with Hope Larson s Compass South Andy Hirsch s Varmints or Matt Phelan s Snow White but generally speaking it s a rarity The idea that someone would fictionalize the life of young ueen Elizabeth I through the eyes of a child raised amongst nuns almost sounds like a crazy dare Even so ueen of the Sea by Dylan Meconis stands out as one of the most accomplished even beautiful comics of the year Let s see what we can do to keep it from being a secretThe first thing you need to know about Margaret is that she wasn t born on the Island The second thing that you should know is that the island is full of nuns That doesn t bother Margaret who loves her home and everything on it When she prays for another child William and his mother appear It s strange but for them the Island is a prison keeping those who have angered the King in some way apart from the rest of the world When William leaves his departure is followed by the arrival of two new guests One is a lady and the other a nun of particular venom and spite In no time at all Margaret learns that the lady is Eleanor the disposed ueen of Albion The two bond but the Margaret learns about her guest the she comes to grips with the fact that there is much she doesn t know about the world And much she doesn t realize about herself A fictionalized retelling of ueen Elizabeth I s early years The choice to fictionalize the events in this book at all was such a curious one that I ve puzzled for a while over why the choice was even made From the get go we are told that this story takes place in a country called Albion We are then presented with a map of the British Isles After that for folks who know their history the storyline has no difficulty keeping pace with the historical record of ueen Elizabeth s time before she came to the throne There are certainly some additions here and there and it is for this reason that I have to assume the author sought to separate her story from that of Elizabeth s Even so I took a strange comfort in knowing the ending fully aware that Meconis could upend everything in future installments if she so desired Had she kept this book with the real names in history she could have taught kids some valuable history But isn t she teaching history with every page anyway Reading this book you can t help but learn about different types of stitching or what the sea might wash onshore or what a meal might consist of in the sixteenth century The choice was made with a clear purpose in mind What that purpose might be may be revealed in subseuent seuelsA good writer can infuse even the smallest side character with a singular personality It s not easy but it can be done Comics have the advantage of allowing the reader the chance to put a face to a name As a result you get little snippets of history about each of the nuns that reveals whole treasure troves of information about who they were and are But there are two characters in this book that captured my interest most keenly It shouldn t surprise you that they are our heroines Margaret and the disposed ueen Eleanor Margaret as protagonist and narrator is marvelous in part because her growth is so palpable She goes from innocent in all things to practically wordly in the span of 394 pages You like Margaret too You feel for her You may not always agree with her but you are always always in her corner Eleanor however threatens to steal the show time and again It must have been delicious to write her She gets to be cunning and strategic in one breath and then shortsighted and a victim of her own temper in the next Her intelligence is biting as is her wit and you understand instantly why Margaret would want to spend time with her Many is the author that has given voice to some version of ueen Elizabeth over the years and who could blame them She has no eualBut can I tell you a secret I love the writing Love the plot and the characters and the dialogue The whole kerschmozzle really But the part that I keep returning to over and over that just sets my cold little heart aglow and lifts the entire enterprise up far above the petty rabble I absolutely adore how Meconis chooses to illustrate different aspects of life on an island with nuns That s right I m goofy about convent process and this book provides Now you might suspect and with good reason that a book that outlines the hours of the day is not going to be particularly interesting With that in mind Meconis infuses these selections with light and life and breath Not satisfied with just hours however the author uite cleverly works in other details about day to day life seamlessly integrating them into the story If this book were a musical then these would be the songs As a result you get some highly amusing looks at the silent hand gestures you would have to use when you eat in the Refectory talking is not allowed the rules of chess the animals kept by the sisters etc I cannot claim to know a lot about comics when it comes to their specific artistry And certainly computer wizardry has grown to the point that sometimes it s impossible to tell when something is created by hand or on a screen That said I think it s safe to say that while computer probably had a hand in the fonts and placement of words upon a page the images themselves for the most part resemble nothing so much as the most incredibly adept watercolors I ve ever seen in a comic for kids I mean it truly when I tell you that each page in this book with a few purposeful exceptions is sumptuous There s a limited color palette naturally One didn t walk around Elizabethan England wearing neon after all Then there is so much to be said about how Meconis uses light and shadow You could pore over these pictures all day They must have taken ages to finish and every page is worth itSomething I ve not mentioned until now is the fact that when I looked on the publication page to see how the book was made it didn t mention watercolors at all Instead it reads The illustrations were done in mixed media Why would it say that Because one of the delights upon reading it is discovering all the little moments when the artistic style changes For example when Margaret is called upon to recite the trials of St Elysia the book takes on a style not dissimilar from those illustrated manuscripts of old When Margaret learns to stitch fish there appear to be real stitches not illustrated ones on the page did Dylan Meconis stitch them herself They re awfully clever When we see reproductions of art they have a realism that day to day life can t match All this serves to break up the images in the text Combined with the book s humor and I can stress enough how important that humor is to moving everything along you have a book that can engage a child reader without ever boring them Because graphic novels and comics still occupy this in between space where they re respected but only up to a point they do not win great literary awards Nor for that matter do they often win awards for visual merit There are some exceptions to this and I am grateful whenever a book that integrates text and image in new and interesting ways manages to break free of the expectations surrounding it However for all that a book like ueen of the Sea deserves every award you can name the likelihood is that it will be insufficiently appreciated in its time And yet I have to believe that the combination of excellent writing stunning art and a storyline that will engage and entrance readers will yield some kind of appreciation somewhere There is no other book like this one on the market today for young people Maybe that s a good thing You wouldn t want every book for kids to be as good as this If they were where would the fun be in discovering something this thoroughly enjoyable There are kids out there that like comics and like realism and have long been starved for illustrated stories of the past Hand them this book and then hand it to all the science fiction and fantasy enthusiasts too because this is a book for everyone Impossible to
