This book is set during the Plague that struck 14th century Europe. This book is illustrated in pen and ink, with handwritten font. I found this book very confusing, especially towards the end. The little girl left her home to escape the illness, everywhere she went she was turned away because the illness was being locked out. Eventually, the little girl went home having nowhere to go. Her family wasn’t there, she found her brother in a house that was holding the ill. She escaped with him to finally go home. I would use this book to maybe explain the hysteria that forms when a contagious illness that has no vaccine is going around. Even though different, it can help explain what is happening with the Corona Virus and how people are reacting. ( )

A fast read that reminded me of a graphic novel. A young girl in fourteenth-century Europe is told by her mother to run far and run fast when the "pestilence" arrives in her town. Beautiful pen and ink drawings give the reader a true picture of what the child goes through on her journey from village to castle and across the countryside. Then she meets a kind stranger who feeds her and gives her shelter. She goes back to her village to see her family and helps her little brother escape to the kind strangers household. The author describes how the "pestilence" affects anyone rich or poor and young or old. The author has a fine arts degree with a concentration in drawing. ( )

Timothy Decker, whose The Letter Home was a picture-book tour-de-force, with its gorgeously detailed pen-and-ink illustrations, and understated poignancy of story, does it again with Run Far, Run Fast, a graphic-novel style picture-book examination of the Black Death in medieval Europe. Opening in an unnamed farming village in 1348, it follows the story - told sparingly, as it concerns the text, and unsparingly, as it concerns the artwork - of a young girl whose family are struck down by the Pestilence. Instructed by her mother to "run far, run fast," she tries to outdistance the illness, only to find it everywhere she goes...

As expected, the artwork here was immensely engrossing, expanding upon the text, and providing additional details for the story. The narrator, whose identity is revealed toward the end of the book, appears almost from the beginning, in the visual, although not the textual, narrative. His mask indicates his likely profession, and explains his role as something of a savior/benefactor to the girl, and her surviving family. A book that needs to be perused, as much as read, Run Far, Run Fast is a moving portrait of a very bleak time in history, but although its ending is ambiguous, it does not shut out hope altogether.

Despite my great enjoyment (I will be tracking down Decker's third offering, For Liberty: The Story of the Boston Massacre shortly), I did wonder, as with the first book from this talented author/artist that I read, to whom I would recommend it. Children learning about the medieval world, perhaps? This book does bring home the horrors of the Black Death in a uniquely engaging way. Fans of Timothy Decker, of course. Anyone who loves beautiful pen-and-ink work, as well, I think. It's just a beautiful, genre-bending book! ( )

Decker, whose transcendent The Letter Home is one of my most treasured possessions, has done it again with this deceptively quiet tale of a young girl in the time of the Plague. His stunningly detail-rich pen and ink drawings, as in his prior book, tell a much more heartbreaking story than his words. His words, though, shine with a clear and tender purity that lingers. I've read it 4 times and come away more entranced each time. There are layers upon layers here to be plumbed. Don't hurry through this tour de force. Highly recommended. ( )
