The Canterville Ghost – Original Text – Graphic Novel (Library binding)

The Canterville Ghost – Original Text – Graphic Novel (Library binding)


Exclusive US library/school hardback edition.

  • This is Oscar Wilde's classic story as a full-color graphic novel.
  • Library-bound to withstand the rigors of school and library use.

Wilde's clever parody provides an entertaining twist on the traditional gothic horror story. This brilliant and often overlooked story is a wonderful commentary on how Wilde saw “free” America challenging “traditional” England – all under the guise of a charming, heartwarming and comical book.

The book also includes an illustrated character list (Dramatis Personae) and fascinating support material that details the life and work of Oscar Wilde – all beautifully presented in color.

A materialistic American family moves into the English mansion of Canterville Chase, much to the annoyance of the resident ghost!
