A Bag of Marbles - Joseph Joffo, Vincent Bailly

In 1941, when Joseph Joffo was ten years old, losing a game played with A Bag of Marbles (Graphic Universe, $9.95) was enough to make him weep. Eighteen months later, news of his father’s arrest by the Nazis couldn’t even bring a tear to his eye. In the intervening time, he was robbed of his childhood. He and his older brother Maurice had to escape occupied Paris and make their way alone to France’s free zone in order to avoid being captured by the Nazis because of their Jewish heritage. Kris and Vincent Bailly have transformed Joffo’s 1973 memoir of his perilous wartime journey into a poignant graphic novel, passing this story down to a new generation of readers. Ages 15 and up. JLM
