ed. note: Since the release of the Jane £10 note in the UK this past week, there are dozens of articles discussing its value and worth as well as notes to collectors. I am NOT collecting those stories because there are far too many.

Title: Manga Classics: Emma
By: Jane Austen and Stacy King
Pub date: June 24, 2015

In one of my many bios across the internet, I proclaim I contain multitudes and I make a good addition to any trivia team. This is most certainly true as my interests range from Jane Austen to Doctor Who to Formula 1 racing and back again to the Edwardian age (and everything in between). One of the things I do is I write reviews for No Flying, No Tights, a graphic novel review site that is geared for parents and librarians. Since I am a librarian and I love graphic novels, here we are!

With that said, a few years ago I did a review for Stacy King’s Manga Classic: Emma. I love some good paraliterature so I snapped this up in a hurry. While I cannot reproduce the review in whole here, copyright and all that (but you can find the full review link at the bottom), I can summarize to say I liked this quite a bit, I gush about it in the review, and I recommend it if you were interested in reading manga as this would be  good entry point (Udon, the publisher, has other classical tales in manga form) as well as it would be a good entry point for someone who is intimidated by the classics.

You can find the full review here.
