‘Metaphrog presents a stunning adaptation of a famous French folk tale in Metaphrog’s Bluebeard.’
FOREWORD REVIEWS

‘Metaphrog’s illustrations glow with fluorescent intensity, and the saturated imagery conveys murderous suspense.’
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

‘Delightfully offbeat and thrilling, with an actively heroic lead and unexpected magical menaces.’
LIBRARY JOURNAL

‘In a book of berry-bright colours… the images of heroic Eve and Tom the goat boy stand out,
weighty and rich, as though they might feel braided to the touch.’

Here's our latest comic project: SHIFTING. It was commissioned by STEP Families and The University of Edinburgh. Gypsy/Traveller discrimination is still rife and sadly hasn't improved for decades. It's really the last remaining prejudice and needs addressed. This comic will be distributed in schools and aims to generate discussion about bullying, discrimination, tolerance and action.

The story has a unique twist; it is unfinished. As the story is incomplete, we are asking children and young people to create their own endings to the story. We want them to think about each of the incidents described in the story, and how they could have been different and what should happen next to make sure pupils can stay safe at school and raise awareness that bullying should never be tolerated?

‘Political, progressive and yet suitable for both children and adults thanks to the clarity of its storytelling
and the almost tactile appeal of Marrs’ artwork’

THE HERALD

‘This graphic novelisation of the Bluebeard story is wonderfully realised.
The illustrations are beautifully drawn… Unlike some versions of the tale, this one has a satisfying feminist twist too.’
