For those familiar with the "Ramayana" and its considerable length, Nagpal's annotated graphic novel version is an engaging adaptation that carries readers swiftly through major plot points. The short glossary is a nice addition, although not essential for older readers, since the meanings of most unfamiliar words are cleverly embedded through contextualization by Nagpal. . . The illustrations are vibrant and the text easy to read, both in terms of vocabulary and organization. Ideal for midlevel to early YA readers who enjoy fantasy, history, or epic tales.
