Wow, Elaine M. Will has done it again. Her last graphic novel, Look Straight Ahead, was very good. This one, though, is masterful. I can see it being taught in schools one day, particularly in the Saskatchewan area. And I’m not just saying that because she sent this.
In terms of the plot, it follows the fascinating true story of Tom Sukanen, an almost legendary figure who started to build a ship despite being nowhere near the sea. I won’t tell you what happens next because you ought to read the graphic novel to find out, but I will say that it was a moving story that was sad in places whilst simultaneously being inspiring. Plus the artwork was fantastic too, which means it pretty much ticks all of the boxes. I can’t think of a way to improve it.
