Megan Kelso's graphic novel, The Squirrel Mother, is a beautifully drawn collection of short stories that have a great intellectual depth. Most of the stories only last a few pages, but Kelso is precise with her words and pictures and able to quickly convey her ideas and questions. She gives us stories about a mother leaving her child, learning the waltz, reading neighbors through Halloween candy, and dealing with a crazy aunt, among the many stories. She tackles heavy issues with a delicate touch, much like her art. There's a brief interlude for a piece about Alexander Hamilton that delves heavily into political history, but again, it's filled with depth. All her stories feature unique perspectives that go against the grain. This is a great graphic novel that is a quick read, but contains ideas that will linger in your thoughts.
