    Pratchett really ought not worry about Rowling. The man has far more talent (in my opinion).

    To wit, how many people knew that he is also a rather good illustrator?

      Aw poop! More competition? I'm getting tired of all of these people with successful careers in other fields, suddenly revealing that they can also draw really well. I studied long and hard to... er... actually I got grade C GCSE, and then gave up, but it's the principle that counts... er... :(

      When we read books/texts in class, many teachers, quite independent of each other gave me the pompous father/vicar roles... I was also Friar Laurence in our school's production of Rome and Juliet. I dread to think what all that says about me.

            Actually, graphic novels are one of the things that Shakespeare can do really rather well - certainly far better than conventional novelists. Think about it, all Shakespeare really is is dialogue.
            You've got a point there - it could be better than just reading it in black and white. I don't think my friend the teacher would have had much time for graphic novels by anyone, to tell the truth. However, I certainly agree with her that treating Shakespeare as a 'sacred text' that everyone must read is crazy. Many of those kids would have had problems following a Batman comic, so maybe they should just focus on that kind of thing - one of those comic versions of the latest Hollywood film might strike a chord with them, no matter how anyone else might sniff...
