Oct. 13, 2011 at 2:32pm Girls like comics too!

I am very excited about two books that recently joined out library collection. I can’t wait to read the fourth book in the Amulet series by Kazu Kibuishi, The Last Council, and the new reissue of the first Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon book by Naoko Takeuchi. Both books have strong female characters. Both books have stories that appeal to the imagination of young girl readers. Best of all, both books are graphic novels

In essence, a graphic novel is a really long comic book. A good graphic novel combines drawings, space, and words into an intriguing story that leaves the reader begging for more. That is not so different from a regular text-based book. Most people who think about comic books still think superheroes and boys. Well, these two new books as well as the books listed below are testament to one fact: Girls like comics too!
