Reviews
**STARRED REVIEW**
"This memoir is thus exceptionally informative and entertaining in relation to some aspects of deaf communication, but, most centrally and powerfully, it is exceptional for its perceptive, indomitable protagonist and complex story of friendship, growth, and classroom and family dynamics."-- "The Horn Book Magazine, starred review"
**STARRED REVIEW**
"Bell's earnest rabbit/human characters, her ability to capture her own sonic universe ("eh sounz lah yur unnah wawah!"), and her invention of an alter ego--the cape-wearing El Deafo, who gets her through stressful encounters . . . all combine to make this a standout autobiography."-- "Publishers Weekly, starred review"
"Bell's book should be an inspiration for those who are 'different, ' and it should help others to understand just what being different means. Required reading isn't always fun reading. El Deafo should be the first and is definitely the second."-- "New York Times Book Review"
"This funny and poignant memoir in graphic novel format about a child grappling with hearing loss, entering school and making friends is ideal for kids navigating new experiences."-- "Shelf Awareness" (8/20/2014 12:00:00 AM)
**STARRED REVIEW**
"This warmly and humorously illustrated full-color graphic novel set in the suburban '70s has all the gripping characters and inflated melodrama of late childhood: a crush on a neighborhood boy, the bossy friend, the too-sensitive-to-her-Deafness friend, and the perfect friend, scared away."-- "School Library Journal, starred review" (9/1/2014 12:00:00 AM)
**STARRED REVIEW**
"Her whimsical color illustrations (all the human characters have rabbit ears and faces), clear explanations and Cece's often funny adventures help make the memoir accessible and entertaining."-- "Kirkus Reviews, starred review"
