Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Responding to the growth of all forms of graphic novels and nonfiction, Monnin advocates using the material that students willingly read to improve literacy, not just in reading classrooms but also as part of the English/Language Arts curriculum. Although there is nothing groundbreaking in her thesis, she is a cheerleader for using standard techniques, such as story maps, in a new and more graphic manner. The examples and book titles will be a help to teachers unfamiliar with graphic novels and suggestions for comparison units using a graphic novel with a traditional novel will support those more at ease with conventional selections. The appendixes alone are worth the cost of the book. This should be in the professional collections of all secondary school libraries.—Suanne Roush, Osceola High School, Seminole, FL
