Editorial Reviews

"This text delivers an excellent staff-development-in-a-book with regard to graphic novels. School librarians are encouraged to add graphic novels to their collections and show how to effectively use them in lesson plans and even tie them to content-based standards. The book presents a solid overview of the types of readers this genre reaches and its connection to visual literacy....This is an excellent source for collection development and, if necessary, justifying the inclusion of graphic novels in the school library collection.
