The Savage Free read í 102 M and the other kids around But Blue's story has a life of its own weird and wild and magic and dark and when the savage pays a nighttime visit to Hopper Blue starts to wonder where he ends and his creation begins At first I was rather perturbed by the bad spelling of Blue s original story The change in font was enough distinction from the first person narrative that I didn t really need the mistakes especially that many To me this started the story off a little forced feeling I also really wanted to like the pictures but somehow I ve never been able to convince myself that I like McKean s work perhaps because like in this case it didn t completely fit the story The rawness is certainly right on but annoying details like the savage s dog skin clothing and chicken feathers were missing and there isn t uite the same sense of development that the story exhibits in the illustrations I m also not sure how I feel about Hopper getting actually beat up but I thought the ending was uite lovely and allowed me to look back at the story and discover surprising depth to its short chapters

The Savage Free read í 102 Mysterious and utterly mesmerizing this graphic novel within a novel pairs the extraordinary prose of David Almond with the visual genius of Dave McKeanBlue Baker is writing a story not all that stuff about wizard By all logic the melding of Dave McKean to David Almond should be a bad idea David Almond tends to write YA novels with adult sensibilities gnawing away at their cores and I include My Dad s A Birdman in that gross generalization Dave McKean for his own part is a fan of creating adult centered graphic novels The Sandman series most notably and picture books with mature looks and feels The Wolves in the Walls The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish etc So it stands to reason that if you combined the two together you would end up with something that a child wouldn t have a chance at enjoying or understanding It would have to be something nightmare inducing to say the least Yet my encounter with The Savage came as a bit of a surprise to me As feared it definitely has a slightly older readership but the darkness of the images and the text work together in ways that actually reduce the scary factor rather than increase it I wouldn t go about handing the book to a five year old but for the canny child of eleven or twelve The Savage is a wild untamed release of instinct and pain The kind of thing a lot of adults wouldn t trust a child to understand The kind of thing a kid could appreciate and understand for sureBlue s father is dead so his school counselor tells him to write down his feelings to deal with the pain I did try for a while but it just seemed stupid and it even made me feel worse so another idea presents itself to him Without fully comprehending why Blue starts writing about a savage kid who lives on his own in the nearby Burgess Woods When Blue is bullied by a boy named Hopper he writes about the savage seeing and loathing the kid When Blue is with his little sister he writes passages where they interact with The Savage if only from a distance Yet as Blue writes and he comes to feel that the Savage is than just words on a page And when an incident with Hopper comes to light Blue comes to respect his creation though it is up to the reader to decide how much they themselves believe in his existenceThe idea that what you write becomes real has been made most famous by books like Cornelia Funke s Inkheart series But there has always been a fear on the part of humankind that words could carry this power Almond touches on this fear If you could create a living breathing danger by simply writing about it would you Blue s anger and resentment at his own father s death and at the threat of the bully Hopper come to life in his Savage Psychologically this could be seen as pretty healthy but then that old is this a reliable narrator uestion comes up Did the Savage really beat up Hopper in his bed Or was that actually Blue possessed by the creature of his own making Some kids will be inclined to take Almond at his word A small few however will not be so sureFor my own part I have an inexplicable urge to bite people when they start lamenting the potential psychological damage that comes with letting kids hear tales like Little Red Riding Hood or the end of The Three Little Pigs Such violence Such horror In spite of the fact that generations upon generations of adults have grown up uite nicely thank you very much on the goriest of the gruesome Grimms the parental instinct to coddle remains I have few doubts then that The Savage will strike than one grown up as inappropriate child fare Look at the boy conjured up in this story He kills and eats people How is that okay for someone under the age of 18 The fact that this character is only described as eating people and never goes so far as to do anything any worse than punching someone out in their beds that is a fact they forget McKean is probably the reason why they it forget too Like a reigned in Ronald Searle McKean s images give the impression that you ve seen worse things than you actually have It has something to do with his use of ink I think The splattered wiry gamy Savage suggests a whole world of decay and blood that never make it to the page but lie somewhere simmering just below the surface It s Where the Wild Things Are shot through with teeth and fleshThere has been some debate on what exactly to call this book Is it a graphic novel Not in the classic sense There are no thought bubble or speech balloons save one small passage No clear cut panels or common comic tropes But the words and the pictures do mix and match in new and peculiar ways The term illustrated novel has been pulled out a lot lately to describe all these books that don t slot neatly into one category or another I mean there s no other way to describe what a book like this is doing The pictures and the words are interacting constantly each one reliant upon the other You could read The Savage without its illustrations but it would be a weaker product I feel as if you actually need McKean s gaunt half crazed figure out there to give the book the sense of menace missing from the text McKean s Savage could do anything He could hurt the narrator or destroy someone in the story we love You begin to feel like the only way he s kept in check is through Almond s gentle words At least I didSo much of this book comes down to this melding of words and color When Blue writes the Savage s story his misspellings add to the danger and threat A sentence like He crowched down and licked the blud from his hands and gript his nife and watched carries weight than its well spelled cousin The font of these passages is meant to be childlike and potentially wild So too are the colored washes that accompany the Savage s passages since the only illustrated sections in this book are the ones that come out of Blue s brain which suggest that McKean had some kind of plan in mind when he colored his inks At first glance there seem to be only two colors at play Green scenes take place during the day and blue scenes at night But a closer examination reveals other shades and hues as well Blue penned pictures appear in the midst of green sunny days One small passage appears in a sea of greenyellow And of course there is the single instance when blood is shed For that scene the red stands out turning purple in a long wash against the blue of night traveling up the Savage s punching armWildness Savagery McKean and Almond do not fear touching upon these things These psychological necessities in every healthy human psyche Adults often do fear own their internal animals however and will often attempt to protect their children in some misguided attempt to shelter them from some of the darkness in the world A little darkness is healthy necessary even in keeping us sane and sound And The Savage alights on that little piece of darkness in us I ve little doubt that it will have a hard time finding its audience Neither fish nor fowl graphic novel nor prose it sits on the fence between one art form and another As a result it will be punished for its fluidity Punished for not being just one thing or another but both at once Fortunately I have faith that those who find it and those that need it will come across it somewhere Always assuming the adults in the vicinity have a
