Winner of the American Library Association’s 2024 Odyssey Award for Excellence in Audiobook Production! 

The beloved #1 New York Times bestselling and Newbery Honor winning graphic novel, adapted for audio with a full cast and sound effects.


El Deafo is now streaming on Apple TV+. The Guardian called the animated series: "Sweet, funny, poignant and definitely not just for kids."

Starting at a new school is scary, especially with a giant hearing aid strapped to your chest! At her old school, everyone in Cece’s class was deaf. Here, she’s different. She’s sure the kids are staring at the Phonic Ear, the powerful aid that will help her hear her teacher. Too bad it also seems certain to repel potential friends.

Then Cece makes a startling discovery. With the Phonic Ear she can hear her teacher not just in the classroom but anywhere her teacher is in the school—in the hallway . . . in the teacher’s lounge . . . in the bathroom! This is power. Maybe even superpower! Cece is on her way to becoming El Deafo, Listener for All. But the funny thing about being a superhero is that it’s just another way of feeling different . . . and lonely. Can Cece channel her powers into finding the thing she wants most, a true friend?

Cece Bell is the author of the Newbery Honor Book and Eisner Award winner El Deafo, which received four starred reviews and was a New York Times bestseller. She is also the author of Rabbit and Robot, winner of a Geisel Honor. Cece lives with her husband, the author Tom Angleberger, in Christiansburg, Virginia.
