Book Description
Did you go to high school? Did you want to go to high school? Or, God forbid, did you ever teach high school? Roofing with a Naked Lady is for you–perhaps it’s about you. During 30 years of teaching, Fred Anderson has found himself in hilarious, serious, and sometimes dangerous situations. In this collection of sometimes amazing but always true stories, Fred battles a falling barn, an army of cockroaches, an undercover superintendent, and teenagers wielding assorted powertools—and weapons. Fred Anderson has taught guitar, theater lighting design, leather work, metal fabrication, drafting, auto mechanics, wood-working, cabinet making, pattern making, and construction trades, and of course, roofing. His love of teaching is second only to his passion for writing and telling his stories.

From School Library Journal
Grade 7 Up–This series volume does not stand out, but it still makes a fine counterpoint to conventional graphic-novel themes. It includes some of Stevenson's longer stories as well as a section showcasing some of his short poems and fables. Clever rhymes juxtapose easily with the humorous, black-and-white artwork, and the combination invites repeated readings; "The Angler" is a fine example. The story of Jekyll and Hyde is divided into two sections illustrated by two different artists. The events leading up to Jekyll's confession comprise part one, and the confession itself forms the body of part two. Though each section stands on its own, the striking differences in the artistic styles make the transition from one to the other difficult. A brief biography by Mort Castle and a short story by...

From Booklist
Gr. 9-12. This thirteenth volume in the Graphic Classics series offers adaptations of eight works by the early-twentieth-century author of such classic adventure-romance stories as Scaramouche and Captain Blood. Densely illustrated in black-and-white panels, the stories, retold by diverse writers and illustrators, range in style from realistic to cartoonlike, achieving continuity through their period details and appropriately archaic prose. A lengthy, straightforward account of Peter Blood's progress from conscientious doctor to slave to buccaneer captain leads off, followed by a lively biography of Sabatini himself, which combines personal information with witty asides and pop-culture references. "The Dream" is a provocative psychological mystery in which hypnosis plays a part. Author and artists profiles...
