The world of comic literature is an ever-growing, ever-evolving, genre. Every month there are exciting titles hitting the market. It is simply amazing. There are so many new books scheduled to hit the shelves this year. I’ve received several catalogs from publishers and I am overjoyed at the varied titles.

A number of exciting books came in this week. Scholastic and Papercutz are two comic literature publishers that deserve a watchful eye. Both of these groups are focused on putting out graphic novels for the young reader. They are not the only ones doing great things. I’ll keep you posted.

The nonfiction buffs will rejoice at the number of biographies and science-based titles listed. Persons representing different cultures, fighters of freedom and equality for others, and inventors and presidents are all represented.

And now … to the list of books that came into the classroom this week:

  1. Amulet: The Stone Keeper (book 1)
  2. Artemis Fowl: The Graphic Novel
  3. Benjamin Franklin: An American Genius
  4. Cesar Chavez: Fighting for Farm Workers
