The author recounts in graphic novel format her experiences with hearing loss at a young age, including using a bulky hearing aid, learning how to lip read, and determining her "superpower." "Going to school and making new friends can be tough. But going to school and making new friends while wearing a bulky hearing aid strapped to your chest? That requires superpowers! In this funny, poignant graphic novel memoir, author/illustrator Cece Bell chronicles her hearing loss at a young age and her subsequent experiences with the Phonic Ear, a very powerful--and very awkward--hearing aid. The Phonic Ear gives Cece the ability to hear--sometimes things she shouldn't--but also isolates her from her classmates. She really just wants to fit in and find a true friend, someone who appreciates her as she is. After some trouble, she is finally able to harness the power of the Phonic Ear and become "El Deafo, Listener for All." And more importantly, declare a place for herself in the world and find the friend she's longed for"--… (més)

A brilliant and humorous graphic memoir on what it was like for Bell to grow up deaf. I appreciated how much I learnt about a deaf experience and some basic courtesies I could do when I'm speaking when speaking to anyone: face people directly, don't exaggerate mouth movements nor slow down nor raise volume.

I also appreciated how the common themes of childhood still resonated: feeling like an outsider, navigating friendships, insecurities, crushes. Now compound this with the public misconception of deafness and having to - in Bell's case, involuntarily - physically distinguish yourself (with a Phonic Ear) in public in order to be able to communicate with the speaking and hearing world. Compound this with the symbolism of the rabbits, the beautiful art style, the creativity of using the speech bubbles to visualise the deafness. And the result is a funny, thoughtful, and informative memoir that I can highly recommend to readers of all ages. ( )

RGG: A graphic novel that is as much about the challenges of growing up as it is about the challenges of growing up deaf. Reading Interest: 8-12

I love this book. More than any other book I've read, El Deafo manages to convey to readers the protagonist's point-of-view and the difficulties they experience. We readers can see exactly what it must have been like for Cece as she discovered she could no longer hear. Bell shows us the silence, her confusion, and her parents' concern leading up to her hearing tests. And by depicting post-hearing aid dialogue the way it sounded to her, instead of writing what people actually said, she illustrates the difficulties she faced understanding the conversations around her... because we readers have just as much trouble deciphering the conversations! Later in the story, Bell does just as good a job depicting the fuzziness of imperfect eyesight and the improvement provided by glasses.

The color scheme is bright and cheery, and the illustrations are absolutely adorable. (They reminded me a bit of the Arthur television show, but better.) Kids will wish they had cute bunny ears like Cece and her friends.

I'm so happy that El Deafo is a book that will be fun, enjoyable, and appealing for both girls and boys. Too many books lately seem to focus too much on readers of one gender, ostracizing the other gender in the process. But Bell proves that stories can successfully have broad appeal and entertainment value. There are superheroes and bathroom humor and shenanigans, sleepovers and friendship drama and a first crush, and, through it all, a funny relatable character just trying to make some friends and hide what makes her "special," a.k.a. "different."

At the end of the day, the message in El Deafo--that what sets you apart from others doesn't have to be a bad thing, it can even make you a SUPERHERO!--is a message we all need to hear, whether we're still kids or not.

Note: I received a digital sample from NetGalley and a full galley from the publisher. ( )
