Winning Graphic Novels

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I have recently started reading more graphic novels, and I understand now why this genre is a student favorite.  These graphic novels have believable characters whom experience real-life problems that we can all identify with as readers.  More importantly, graphic novels are not just for boys.

Graphic novels are recognized as a serious written art form.  Two years running, a graphic novel has won the prestigious Newbery Award.   Last year the autobiography, El Deafo, by Cece Bell won a Newbery Honor and this year, newcomer Victoria Jamieson, won a Newbery Honor with her graphic novel, Roller Girl.

If these graphic novels sound good, you might like a Mighty Girl’s new collection of over 100 empowering graphic novels.  Click here
