Tale of One Bad Rat

People sometimes think because graphic novels are stories in pictures that they must be bits of fluff. Not so. Tale of One Bad Rat by Bryan Talbot tells the story of Helen. Helen is a runaway, who left an abusive home. She hits the streets in search of a new life. She finds that life away from her home isn't any easier. Running through the book is her connection with Beatrix Potter, who also declared her independence. One Bad Rat isn't an easy book to read, but it is a good book and a valuable book.
