Tom's Midnight Garden (Graphic novel)

Author: Philippa Pearce
Illustrator: Edith
Publisher: Oxford University Press

Philippa Pearce’s classic novel has previously been adapted dramatically for theatre, film and television. Here it is given another parallel life – appropriately for a timeslip story – as a graphic novel adapted from the original by French artist Edith. The pictures evoke the 1950’s and Victorian settings without restricting the reader’s imagination, the dappled sunlight of the Victorian garden contrasting with the shade of the gloomy interior of the 1950’s house.
