Item description for Daddy Long Legs (Manga Literary Classics series) by Ykids ...

In graphic novel format, tells the tale of a young orphan named Jerusha who is sent to college by a mystery benefactor on the condition that she write to him of her education.

Publishers Description
Combining the exciting graphics of manga style with classic stories, these beloved works by literary icons are accessible and entertaining to today's children, as well as educational—each story is accompanied by a time line that puts the story's events in historical perspective. Visually stunning, this series is a beautifully updated version of yesterday's literary comics, sure to hook young readers on these perennial classics and the written word. Manga, one of the fastest growing segments of children's literature, is incredibly popular amongst school-age children and lends itself exceptionally well to the vivid stories in this series. Jean Webster's novel has been beloved by young girls ever since it was published in 1912. In the story, Jerusha, an orphan girl, is surprised when an anonymous benefactor decides to send her to college as long as she faithfully writes to report her progress. Letters between Jerusha and her sponsor—enlivened in this retelling by manga illustrations of their separate activities—chronicle Jerusha's dreams and discoveries as she comes of age.

Reviews - What do customers think about Daddy Long Legs (Manga Literary Classics series)?

Follows the story, art was dreadful  Jun 2, 2008
Okay, first off, the photo shown is not really the one on the original book. The girl is actually brunette and not as anime cute. I was really looking forward to this since I like the idea of classics being turned into manga. However, after waiting for nearly three months more than I originally thought I was going to when I placed my pre-order, when I got the book, a quick flip through it proved a major disappointment. The artwork is obviously done by Americans, and no offence to my fellow Americans, but we just don't have the same Manga style as the Japanese. The characters wavered from odd looking chibis to rather creepy-looking realistic people. The story was pretty much word for word from the original book of 'Daddy Long Legs' so you don't get any other thoughts from any of the other characters. Granted, since the original book was written as letters and thus other characters' thoughts weren't stated either, but the manga feels odd because it's just Judy's thoughts. So, if you can borrow or get the book used, I'd recommended doing that than buying it at full price. I don't really think it's worth it.
