Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
Wow! Here is a book that introduces young readers to a graphic novel. The author begins by including two pages of illustrations and text explaining how to read a graphic novel. The story is about two friends arriving at school early so they both have time to play on the playground. Andrew leaves his lunch bag by a bench so he can run and swing. Unfortunately, he doesn't realize that his sack lunch fell out of the lunch bag and went under the bench. He works very hard in the morning and when it was lunch time he was very hungry. He realizes that he left his lunch outside, but when he went to look for it, it was gone. Andrew is VERY hungry and can't seem to think of how he can find his lunch. Maybe someone else ate his lunch. Can his friend help him? The graphics are wonderful and the story flows easily from the beginning to the end. Graphic novels are favorites of mine as they are perfect for reluctant readers and also perfect for reading aloud. I was impressed how the author while writing this book for a young age group did not make it sound too childish. At the end of the book, the author includes a mini autobiography, a mini biography about the illustrator, a glossary, discussion questions, writing prompts, and covers of additional graphic novels. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs
School Library Journal
Gr 1–2—Each title includes instructions on "How to Read a Graphic Novel" and a glossary of key words with pronunciations and definitions, along with discussion questions and writing prompts intended for teachers, parents, and caregivers. In the first book, Gavin becomes friends with school-bus bully Max when the latter has a bike accident and must recuperate at home. In the second, Andrew loses his lunch bag on the school playground. His friend Dylan helps him search, eventually finding it in the school's Lost and Found. Both books are illustrated with bright, cartoon-style art. The panels and text are easy to follow, making them good introductions to graphic novels. However, the stories are too predictable to be memorable.—Marilyn Ackerman, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
