Jarhead_h: I had never heard of this book, but simply seeing that's it's illustrated makes ask what the hell it's doing in a middle school classrom in the first place.  Not against illustrated work for pleasure reading, but academic?

Not sure what you have against illustrations or how that statement even makes sense. I would think it would make kids more likely to read the book. Just because something resembles something else doesn't mean they're the same. Why, I bet Archie and Jughead aren't even in Perseopolis. And I don't think Odie and Nermal show up until Perseopolis II: The Halalasagna Caper.
