This’ll probably turn out to be a book report.

A SHORT book report, due to my laziness, but a book report nonetheless.

Okay, let’s get this over with…

Maus is about Nazis. In Poland.

It’s a graphic novel.

Oh, and all the characters are animals. The Germans are cats, the Jews are mice, the Poles are pigs, the French are frogs, the Swedes are elk,-the Americans are even dogs!

This sound weird yet?

It’s basically a cartoonist talking with his father about the Holocaust.

They are also mice.

If I wanted to look at mice being depressing, I would find a Pearls Before Swine strip.

But it’s really good!


I mean it…

Did I mention the father doesn’t have proper grammar due to being Polish?

One thought on “Maus

  1. Did you know that author and artist Art Spiegelman won a Pulitzer Prize for Maus? It’s been described as a beautiful and haunting story. I think I’ll put it on my list of books to read over holiday break.
