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.
