Educational, Funny and Entertaining

Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood (Persepolis, #1-2)
Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood

By: Marjane Satrapi

Genre:  YA graphic novel

Pages: 160

Published: 2004

Read: August

4.5 out of 5

Reading this graphic novel, reconfirmed that my favorite graphic novels are biographic or historical in nature. I think this is because they are usually simply written without overwhelming you with facts. Since I didn’t enjoy history when I was younger and still can’t get into long-winded nonfiction books; well-written and illustrated graphic novels are an enjoyable way to reeducate (or learn something completely new) myself. This is definitely a great example. Persepolis is about a young girl growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. It is not only educational, it is surprisingly funny, entertaining, and a true eye-opener. I highly recommend it to everyone.
