Literary Graphic Novels for Secondary School

  • Age: 0 to 100
  • Grade: p to 17
I think the attraction of a graphic novel for students is that they can read it in one day. This works for both reluctant readers (GNs are not as intimidating), as well as for students who love stories: They want to read as many as possible, as quickly as possible. Also, some stories are better told in a graphic fashion. In the best GNs, the pictures are the poetry which convey the legendary 1000 words. I'm trying to stock my library with as many alternative reads for students as possible. A great resource for buying and chatting about graphic novels is The Beguiling out of Toronto. ***Please preview these titles. Some may not be appropriate for your students.***

Exceptional Kids' Novels in Verse (By Helen Kubiw)

  • Age: 0 to 100
  • Grade: p to 17
Is it poetry, or prose in verse, or a free verse novel, or a novel in verse? All epithets have been used for the novel-length stories told in verse form. Writing a book is challenge enough, but to write it in verse, rhyming or not, seems almost inexecutable. Luckily, several authors have found their voices in this writing style and they are exceptionally skilled at it. Judging by the awards bestowed upon the ten books in this list and the young readers of both genders who consume these stories voraciously, it is a style that has a solid foothold in kidsCanLit.

What I Read on My Summer Vacation (Andrew Larsen).

**Updated with Andrew's two latest titles! "As a stay at home dad, it’s never easy to carve out time to write. Summer presents a whole new set of challenges. This past summer I was able to do some writing in the very early morning, before the rest of the house was awake. On the whole, however, my kids’ summer vacation meant that I had to take a vacation from writing. So, instead, I read. What a treat! I so seldom get a chance to read. And with the beginning of the new school year I resolve to read even more. Meanwhile, here are some of my recently read favourites." **Andrew Larsen is the author of The Imaginary Garden. His latest offering is his first chapter book, The Luck of Jude. Andrew is a stay at home dad who works when his kids are at school. He is thrilled to be back at work, writing a story about a summer vacation.**
