RESEARCH NOTES: Graphic Novels for kids
some great graphic novel ideas from my friend Rebecca!
As for graphic novels, let me tell you which ones are a big hit at my school.
The Bone series – http://www.amazon.com/BONE-1-Boneville-Jeff-Smith/dp/0439706408/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1423421085&sr=1-2&keywords=bone+series
Smile and Sisters are a huge hit and even though the protagonists are female, the boys at my school are drawn to them too – http://www.amazon.com/Smile-Raina-Telgemeier/dp/0545132061/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1423421133&sr=1-1&keywords=smile
The Amulet series is also very popular at my school but it’s a very different type of graphic novel than Tintin. It’s a dark story that starts with a father dying and a family being forced to move to an old haunted house – http://www.amazon.com/Stonekeeper-Amulet-Book-1/dp/0439846811/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1423421202&sr=1-1&keywords=amulet
Big Nate is also very popular and a bit less intense – http://www.amazon.com/Big-Nate-Triple-Play-Box/dp/006228360X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1423421248&sr=1-1&keywords=big+nate+books
I hope that helps!
