I really enjoyed learning about Skellig Michael and the monks who lived there. My disappointment was with the St. Joan of Arc graphic story. She’s my patron saint and I was eager to share her story in this format with my grandkids, but I found the pictures often confusing, especially when trying to identify Joan and the dauphin because the coloring and characteristics of the people didn’t seem consistent.
The Last Monks of Skellig Michael: The Mysterious Real-Life History Behind Luke Skywalker's Island
I enjoyed the book
I bought this as a gift for my mother in law so we haven't read it yet but it looks great and I like the way the book looks!
Very well illustrated account of an otherworldly place. In the 20th. century the Benedictine monk John Main brought the "desert spirituality" of Skellig Michael to America. His family still live on the mainland looking out over to Skellig. Great to see these very well informed comics bringing the real adventures of times past to new imaginations.
